      { }
      LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - California Chrome pulled away down the stretch for a dominant win the 140th Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs.

      Taking charge at the top of the lane, California Chrome and jockey Victor Espinoza made a decisive move and quickly sprinted clear. They finished the 1¼ miles in 2:03.66.

      The 5-2 favorite stretched his winning streak to five and Art Sherman, 77, became the oldest winning Derby trainer.

      In a game dominated by millionaires and billionaires, this was a victory for the little guys. Owners Perry Martin and Steve Coburn bred an $8,000 mare to a $2,500 stallion to win the world's most famous race with their one-horse stable.

      Long shot Commanding Curve rallied for second, with Danza third. Wicked Strong was fourth.
