LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (www.incnow.tv) - Orb charged out of a tightly bunched pack in the stretch Saturday to win the 193th running of the Kentucky Derby.

Orb, the 5-1 favorite out of a fairly wide open field, paid $12.80 to win and did the mile and a quarter distance in a time of two minutes 2.86 seconds, a good time considering the muddy condition of the Churchill Downs track.

He won by two lengths over Golden Soul with Revolutionary coming in third.
