Orb Wins 139th Kentucky Derby With Thrilling Victory After Falling Behind Early [Video]

 

Orb, a 7-2 favorite, rallied from an early deficit for a thrilling victory in the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby by two-and-a-half lengths on Saturday, followed by Golden Soul and Revolutionary to round out the top three.

 

In the middle of the race, Orb was as far back as 15th before Rosario gave him the jolt needed for a trip to the winner’s circle.

 

Jockey Joel Rosario brilliantly navigated Orb on an arduous, sloppy track to make it to the winner’s circle, notching the first jewel in horse racing’s Triple Crown.
