Orb splashed through the slop to win the Kentucky Derby today, giving Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey his first victory in the 3-year-old classic.

When the field turned for home on the cool, overcast afternoon at Churchill Downs, Normandy Invasion grabbed the lead while Orb was gearing up. But in the deep stretch, Orb prevailed, carrying Joel Rosario to his first Derby win.

Long shot Golden Soul was second, with Revolutionary third. Normandy Invasion faded to fourth.

Orb, the 5-1 favorite, ran the 1¼ miles in 2:02.89
