Louisville, KY (CNN) - California Chrome, ridden by Victor Espinoza, has won the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby. It is Espinoza's second Derby victory.

In front of a near-record crowd of 164,906, Victor Espinoza guided California Chrome to a rather comfortable win in the 140th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.

Espinoza had California Chrome in a good spot at the top of the stretch and he completely took control in the stretch run.

"He gave me the biggest thrill of my life," trainer Art Sherman told NBC Sports after the race.

There was no challenge for the rest of the field, and California Chrome coasted to victory. He became the first California-bred horse to win the Derby since 1962.

Check below for a complete recap of the day's events.
