NEWMARKET, England (AP) -- Race favorite Australia easily won the 235th English Derby on Saturday as Aidan O'Brien became the first trainer to saddle the winner three years in a row.

Sent off at odds of 11-8 and ridden by Joseph O'Brien, Australia powered to victory in the final straight to triumph ahead of Kingston Hill and Romsdal in the mile-and-a-half classic.

A crowd of more than 100,000 attended the race at Epsom, south of London, including Queen Elizabeth II.
