Constitution wins Florida Derby

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. — Constitution has won the Florida Derby, prevailing in a fierce stride-for-stride battle with Wildcat Red in the major Kentucky Derby prep race.

Trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Javier Castellano, Constitution settled in along the rail for much of the race as Wildcat Red set the pace. Constitution started to move down on the inside as the field of eight made the turn, then wound up overtaking Wildcat Red in the last few strides of the 1 1/8-mile test at Gulfstream Park.

Constitution is unbeaten in three career races, all this year. He finished in 1:49.16 and returned $8.60 for the win.

Even-money favorite Cairo Prince was fourth.
