ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) _ Pioneerof the Nile is still learning how to run, and it showed halfway down the backstretch of the Santa Anita Derby.
That's where the colt tugged his way to the lead, gave it up and then went to the front in the stretch, holding on for a 1-length victory Saturday.
Now, it's on to the Kentucky Derby for trainer Bob Baffert, a three-time Derby winner who hasn't had a starter since 2006.
"I'm glad to be back in the show," he said after claiming his record fifth Santa Anita Derby.
