The 2013 Kentucky Derby was a thrilling mudder of a race that was won by Orb, and the payout list is now in the books. 

The Kentucky Derby on Twitter made the announcement:

Orb takes the 139th #KyDerby https://t.co/IJa9efvOrF

The track was a sloppy mess, but that didn't stop Orb from making a huge statement on one of horse racing's grandest stages.

Orb pulled away down the home stretch after hanging toward the back of the pack throughout most of the race. His final kick was jaw-dropping, and by the time Orb finished the race he and jockey Joel Rosario had a comfortable lead of a few lengths.

With a purse of $2.18 million, this race means big money for the owners of the top horses. Owners Stuart Janney III and Phipps Stable earned a cool $1.41 million for Orb's two minutes of excellence. 

Here is a list of the payouts for every horse that earned a portion of the purse, per KentuckyDerby.com:

What's Next?

Orb will now surely be considered the heavy favorite to win the Preakness Stakes in a few weeks time. The way this horse was able to dominate the field down the home stretch was a revelation, and his owners must be quite proud at this time. 

It's been 35 years since a horse has won America's Triple Crown, but Orb looks to have what it takes to accomplish the lofty goal.

Trainer Claude R. "Shug" McGaughey III was justifiably thrilled by the way his horse finished the race, per the Kentucky Derby on Twitter:

Kentucky Derby @KentuckyDerby

"It's a huge thrill for me. I appreciate all of the people who were pulling for us." - #KyDerby winning trainer @ClaudeMcgaughey

Kentucky Derby @KentuckyDerby

"To see what I saw today, was just something different. I think that we have our hands on a pretty special horse." @ClaudeMcgaughey #KyDerby

Jockey Joel Rosario, who is one of the hottest names in the horse-racing world these days, was impressed by Orb's calm demeanor throughout the race, per Molly Jo Rosen of FocusedFilly.com:

MollyJoRosen @MollyJoRosen

"I had a perfect trip. He was very calm & relaxed." - Rosario #KyDerby

Orb's demonstrative victory over a loaded field that included undefeated Verrazano, hard-charging Revolutionary and a high volume of elite competition proved that he is ready to take on the challenge of winning a Triple Crown.

Enduring speed down the home stretch of a long race is one of the chief characteristics of championship horses, and Orb has it. Perhaps nobody should be surprised, given the horse's elite bloodlines. 

Jennie Rees of the courier-journal.com documented Orb's pedigree before the race:

Orb directly traces to a mare, Claiborne-bred Bold Irish...that direct line produced one of American racing’s most legendary horses—the brilliant and unbeaten filly Ruffian, who suffered fatal injuries in the 1975 match race with Kentucky Derby winner Foolish Pleasure.

Orb's stock is surging, and another win at the Preakness Stakes will have racing enthusiasts on the edge of their seats for the final leg of the Triple Crown—the brutal Belmont Stakes.

For now, however, Orb will rest up while his owners, trainer and jockey celebrate a phenomenal victory at the 139th annual Kentucky Derby.
