Ballingarry won as expected at Longchamp on Sunday, drawing clear for a three-length triumph in the Group 2 Prix Noailles.

Churchill Downs announced Monday that an 11th race will be run on Kentucky Derby Day for the first time. With the Kentucky Derby carded as the ninth race with a 6:04 p.m. Eastern post time, officials wanted an extra race to better stagger the flow of the exiting crowd, so the 11th race is scheduled for 7:25.
