Orb makes it look easy, ‘so easy’

3-year-old colt splashes through the slop to win Kentucky Roses
Churchill Downs officially was “sloppy,” according to track superintendent David Lehr, who downgraded the main track because of consistent rain that fell Saturday morning and early afternoon.
Joel Rosario and Orb resided in the back of the pack for the majority of the 1-mile Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., then rallied late for an impressive victory in 2 miuntes, 2.89 seconds to win their first Run for the Roses.
The 139th field of 19 horses had to navigate sloppy conditions after rain turned the Churchill Downs track into something resembling creamy peanut butter. Palace Malice didn’t seem to mind, setting a blistering pace early before Orb overtook him late to win the Kentucky Derby on Saturday in Louisville, Ky.
