Legendary AFL coach Denis Pagan say he was left speechless after winning the Victoria Derby on Saturday.

“It’s something I’d never thought I’d experience or achieve in my life,” he told Tony Jones, filling in for Neil Mitchell.

An emotional Pagan, who only became a horse trainer four months ago, was stunned when his horse, Johnny Get Angry, took out the $2 million race.

“I didn’t even know what to do, or how to respond, I’ve never been in this situation before,” he said.

“I wouldn’t have even know that no one was at the course, I just lapped up every moment.”
