The 149th Kentucky Derby came down to the very end when Mage won in the horse's fourth-career race.

Jockey Javier Castellano led the No. 8 Mage, who entered the race with 15-1 odds, and came from behind to defeat Two Phil’s, Angel of Empire and Disarm for its second-career win.

Watch Mage’s historic 2023 Kentucky Derby victory below.

It was the 16th mount in the Derby for Castellano, and with a time of 2:01:57, it shows the quality of the horse in what was still a challenging field despite the five scratches from the original field.

Trained by Gustavo Delgado, Mage last finished second in the Florida Derby, losing by only one length.

Mage emerged victorious after the top two favorites to win the Kentucky Derby — Forte and Skinner — dropped out prior to the race.

The next race in the Triple Crown will be the Preakness, which will be held on May 20, at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.
