Derby Winner By The Largest Winning Margin
Back in the old-time days of racing, there was something known as “distancing” a rival in racing.
This involved beating a rival by at least a furlong (eighth of a mile), in which case the horses so beaten were considered to have finished “nowhere,” completely unplaced.
The facts and record proved a similar case though it might be a bit dramatical exaggerated in the 1954 Derby.
