Quest For Fame Wins Epsom Derby

June 07, 1990|From Associated Press

EPSOM, England — Quest For Fame won the 211th running of the Epsom Derby Wednesday, beating 17 rivals with a stretch drive that gave him a three-length victory.

The 9-2 favorite Razeen, ridden by American Steve Cauthen, ran a disappointing race, eventually tiring to finish 14th.

The winner, ridden by Pat Eddery, Britain's top jockey, was second coming around Tattenham Corner, a half-mile from the finish and then swept past the pacesetter Treble Eight.

Blue Stag finished second, followed by Elmaamul.
