McKinzie Returns To Win G1 Pennsylvania Derby

BENSALEM, PA. — McKinzie Is Back On Track with Win in G1, $1 Million Pennsylvania Derby. The 39th Running of Grade 1, Pennsylvania Derby for 3-year-olds saw McKinzie return off a six month break to win the $1 million race by 1 3/4 lengths over Axelrod under Hall of Fame rider Mike Smith in 1:52.05 for the 1 1/8 miles over the fast track. The bay son of Street Sense began the year with all eyes on his hide as the favorite for this year's Kentucky Derby for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert before a hind-leg injury forced him to be withdrawn from a start in the Santa Anita Derby on April 7. The injury was significant enough to take McKinzie off the Derby Trail before stablemate Justify was piloted by Smith as they swept through six races to become the 13th Triple Crown winner.
