Past Derby Winners: Giacomo

To say 2005 Kentucky Derby winner Giacomo was a surprise winner of the Kentucky Derby would be an understatement since he generated a $102.60 win pay-off at odds of 50-1, the second largest ever in Derby history. He also gave veteran jockey Mike Smith his first Derby win in 12 tries, and made owners Jerry and Ann Moss and trainer John Shirreffs’ first Kentucky Derby start a winning one. He now stands at Adena Farm in Paris, Ky.
