Orb Wins Kentucky Derby
Co-betting favorite Orb ran from back in the pack to win today's 139th running of the Kentucky Derby. Trainer Shug McGaughey won his first Derby, and Joel Rosario was the jockey. My picks to win were in no contention. Palace Malice blasted the first mile and then faded to twelfth. Golden Soul was second, Revolutionary (the co-betting favorite) was third, and Normandy Invasion was fourth.
