Kentucky Derby (1882)

Apollo (born 1879) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. He won 24 races in his career, including the 1882 Kentucky Derby.[1]

As of 2009, Apollo is the only horse to win the Kentucky Derby without having raced as a 2-year-old.[1]

Apollo was injured as a five-year old and was retired from racing. He was given to a friend of Morris' wife that lived in Charleston for use as a saddle horse.[2]
