Kentucky Derby Times: Complete Results for Each Horse

Orb came into the race as a favorite to win, and he certainly didn't disappoint.

The great trainer Claude "Shug" McGaughey has been waiting quite a long time for a win at the Kentucky Derby, but thanks to Orb, he can finally say he's won one.

The favorites don't always win at Churchill Downs. In fact, Orb was just the fifth favorite to win the Kentucky Derby in the last 25 years (per ESPN Stats & Info).

It may also be a coincidence, but the No. 16 post seems to be quite lucky. Orb was the second horse to win from that position in the last three years, with Animal Kingdom winning back in 2011 (per ESPN Stats & Info)

The rain made for a wet track on Saturday, but Orb's jockey, Joel Rosario, knew what he was doing.  They stayed in the middle of the pack for a large portion of the race before picking up the pace and surging to the front on the final stretch.

Golden Soul was able to finish in second. He stayed near the front for the entire race, but just wasn't able to make a push late and take home a win. Revolutionary was able to finish in the money, as well, coming in third.

Goldencents was arguably the biggest disappointment of the race. Doug O'Neill was looking to become the seventh trainer to train back-to-back winners in the Kentucky Derby, but the horse just wasn't able to do it. Kevin Krigger was also looking to become the first African American jockey to win since 1902.

Now the talk about a potential Triple Crown will begin to heat up.  With five straight wins for Orb, he certainly has a shot to do so.
