Kentucky Derby 1968: Two Winners, Two Losers

Dancer's Image crosses the wire first in the 1968 Kentucky Derby, with Forward Pass in second to the inside of Francie's Hat. Dancer's Image and Forward Pass broke out of the starting gate for the 1968 Kentucky Derby at 4:40 pm on May 4, 1968, with Forward Pass being declared the winner almost five years later.
