He noted his own bias, though. "We did our best but weren't quite good enough", said O'Brien, who brought 15 horses to Kentucky and departed without a victor.
Enable spent most of Saturday's race in the middle of the pack before jockey Frankie Dettori swung her far outside after the final turn in what was ultimately a two-horse race with fellow filly Magical. The 3-year-old also won the Grade 3 Sham at Santa Anita.
"The Classic is a newer race but a great race, and he won that so smashingly. You never know. Horse racing is a great sport".
"He broke well but then he took a false step and lost his position and I had to look for a plan B", Dettori said. He was comfortable. That's why we got him moving at that point, instead of getting inside and taking back. "He wanted to fight, but he lugged in a little bit so I wanted to be close to Stormy Liberal so he could feel (the competition)".
Game Winner, who was an even-money bet at post time, was followed by 40-1 Knicks Go, who finished second, and 67-1 Signalman, who came in third. His two entries this year in West Coast and McKinzie give him a legitimate chance to add another win to his Hall of Fame resume.
"He likes Churchill Downs so that's a good sign", Baffert said with a laugh.

It's rare to see talented colts stay on the track long enough to mature when the more lucrative option is to retire them, which was partially the case with Justify. He is owned by WinStar Farm, China Horse Club and SF Racing, all ownership partners in this year's Triple Crown victor Justify.
Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, the man behind Triple Crown winners American Pharoah and Justify, is targeting a fourth Classic win in five years.
The hot prospect for the $3.3 million first prize in the one-and-a-quarter mile race - the same distance as the Kentucky Derby - is the John Sadler-trained Accelerate, a multiple victor at the top level in the US. Wonder Gadot faded to ninth while Abel Tasman, the 2017 Kentucky Oaks victor, faded to last in the 11-horse field. Despite missing most of the season because of injury, Enable could make a run at Europe's top honor if she becomes the first horse to sweep the Arc and Turf in the same year. Giving jockey Paco Lopez his first Cup win, Roy H camped on the outside of the early speed and took command at the top of the stretch, clearing off down the lane to a three-length win.
