Maximum Security was ridden by jockey Luis Saez.
Last year's champion, Justify, broke the Curse of Apollo by becoming the first colt in 136 years to win the Derby after not racing as a two-year old. Justify, trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by jockey Mike Smith, went on to win the Triple Crown.
Next up in the race for this year's Triple Crown is the Preakness Stakes on May 18 at Pimlico Race Course in Maryland.
