2013 Kentucky Derby Results – 139th Edition Of Kentucky Derby Lived Up To Expectations With Orb Coming Out On Top


2013 Kentucky Derby Results

The 139th edition of the Kentucky Derby Results was one of the most highly anticipated among sports betting players because of the fact that the field was so wide open and anything could happen. The actual race didn’t disappoint either, as Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey finally got the win he deserved with Orb winning the 2013 Run for the Roses. Orb rallied all the way from the back of the field to stun the field and win the $2 million race. The three-year old Colt by Malibu Moon came out ahead of the rest of the field in the Fastest Two Minutes In Sports with jockey Joel Rosario riding. The attendance at the Churchill Downs was the ninth-largest of all-time with 151, 619 on hand for the race, and the race itself proved them smart for coming out.

2013 Kentucky Derby ResultsThis year’s Kentucky Derby Results was also one of the most watched in the history of the television broadcast, and there is no doubt that one of the reasons for it was the presence of Goldencents, the horse owned by Rick Pitino. Pitino recently celebrated an NCAA national title with his Louisville Cardinals, and the chance for the double-score with his horse Goldencents in the Derby made for an interesting storyline. Goldencents wound up finishing 17th in the race with jockey Kevin Krigger trying to become the first African-American jockey to ever win the live betting race.

While Goldencents finishing outside of the top-10 was a substantial disappointment, it wasn’t nearly as bad as Verrazano finishing 14th as the race favorite according to the sites listed on the sportsbook reviews. Verrazano was expected to challenge for the win, but got a bad start out of the No. 14 position and wound up falling all the way back to 17th in the poor conditions. Verrazano’s finish is just one more reminder of how difficult it is to predict this race, and just how exciting it can be.

The runner up position went to Golden Soul, a 34/1 long shot to win the price per head race and another quality story. Known as a stretch runner, Golden Soul survived the awful conditions and nearly ended up winning the race as a massive underdog. While Orb’s win was considered an upset, the fact that Golden Soul finished second and Revolutionary placed third was an even more unlikely finish. Javier Castellano rode Normandy Invasion to a fourth-place finish, while Mylute finished fifth. From the incredible upset wins to the poor performances from some of the horses that failed to live up to expectations, the bottom line is that the Kentucky Derby Results  once again entertained the fans that watched it. The 139th edition of the race was among the most exciting in years, and the perfect way to set the tone for the Triple Crown season.
