Dream success for Pletcher
Todd Pletcher won his second
Kentucky Derby at Churchill
Downs thanks to Always Dream-
ing's comfortable success yester-
Super Saver won on a sloppy track
back in 2010 for Pletcher and on simi-
lar conditions Always Dreaming dou-
bled his Derby tally.
Jockey John Velazquez was also
winning the race for the second time
following his victory on Animal King-
dom in 2011.
It was however, a first success for
Velazquez and Pletcher together,
something the jockey touched upon
in his post-race interview.
"It means a lot, we've had so much
success in the past but we haven't
won the Derby," Velazquez said.
"The way he did it today was very
"Once he got into a comfortable
position he got into the bridle. At
the quarter pole when he stretched
down the lane he was really running."
An emotional Pletcher said: "It's
even more sweet this time. It's very
special. I thought we had a big shot
when we were turning for home."
Always Dreaming was always in
front rank along with State Of Hon-
or, Battle Of Midway and Irish War
Cry and the winner hit the front just
before the turn for home.
Very little got into contention from
off the pace, with the exception of
Lookin At Lee who scraped the rail as
he moved through from mid-division
Always Dreaming wasn't for
catching in the stretch ,though, with
Lookin At Lee second and Battle Of
Midway holding on for third.
Godolphin's Thunder Snow left the
stalls awkwardly and was pulled up
very early on.
Together, they were unbeatable on
a cool and rainy Saturday at Churchill
Sent off at 9-2 odds, Always
Dreaming made it the fifth straight
year that a Derby favorite has won, the
longest such stretch since the 1970s.
Always Dreaming was followed
across the finish line Saturday by a
pair of longshots: 33-1 Lookin At Lee
and 40-1 Battle of Midway.
Always Dreaming ran 1 ? miles in
2:03.59 and paid $11.40, $7.20 and
Cavs, Spurs win again
TORONTO --- LeBron James scored 35
points, Kevin Love had 16 points and 13
rebounds, and the Cleveland Cavaliers
pulled away in the fourth quarter to
beat the Toronto Raptors 115-94 on
Friday night and take a 3-0 lead in
their second-round playoff series.
DeMar DeRozan scored 37 points
and Jonas Valanciunas had 19 for the
Raptors, who were without three-time
All-Star Kyle Lowry. They trailed by
only two after three quarters before
the Cavaliers quickly blew open the
Game 4 is today in Toronto
The Cavaliers are the first team since
the Minneapolis Lakers in 1949 and
1950 to win their first seven playoff
games in consecutive seasons.
Cleveland won 10 straight to be-
gin the playoffs last year. That streak
ended when Toronto beat the Cavs in
Games 3 and 4 of the Eastern Confer-
ence finals, but the Raptors couldn't
duplicate the feat this time around.
SPURS 103, ROCKETS 92
HOUSTON --- Kawhi Leonard and
LaMarcus Aldridge scored 26 points
apiece to help San Antonio, now with-
out Tony Parker, beat Houston to take
a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference
Aldridge had managed just 19 points
combined in the first two games, but
stepped up in the wake of Parker's sea-
son-ending leg injury, scoring nine
points in the fourth quarter to help the
Spurs pull away.
Game 4 is tonight in Houston.
James Harden led the Rockets with 43
points after scoring just 13 in Game 2. But
he had just five assists and complained
about the officiating all night.
The Spurs were playing in the postsea-
son without Parker for the first time since
2001, ending an NBA record of 221 straight
playoff appearances for the Frenchman.
The 34-year-old was injured in the fourth
quarter of Game 2. (AP)
