Embellishing Bob won the $150,000 Derby Trial on Saturday night after stewards disqualified Bayern for interference down the stretch of a thrilling three-wide finish at Churchill Downs.
Embellishing Bob jockey Brian Hernandez immediately lodged an objection against Bayern rider Rosie Napravnik. Stewards took several minutes before disqualifying Bayern to second place, giving Embellishing Bob his second straight win.
Embellishing Bob ran a mile in 1:36.73 and paid $11.60, $4.60 and $3.40.
Bayern, the Bob Baffert-trained favorite, returned $3.00 and $2.40, and Myositis Dan paid $3.80 to show.
