Orb wins 139th Kentucky Derby




It was the first Kentucky Derby for hall of famer Shug McGauhey and another big win for jockey Joel Rosario. It was a 1-2 finish for descendants of Northern Dancer with longshot Golden Soul finishing second and co-favourite Revolutionary third. Orb is a great great great grandson of the Dancer's son Nijinsky and Golden Soul a grandson of Northern Dancer's son Sadlers Wells.
