LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WJZ) — The fastest two minutes in sports ends with a Maryland victory.

Adam May reports a Baltimore County man owns the winning colt in the Kentucky Derby.

“Down to the wire, Orb has won the Kentucky Derby,” said the announcers.

It was a come from behind finish for Orb, a horse owned by Baltimore County businessman Stuart Janney.

The first jewel of the Triple Crown comes with a $2 million prize.

“We are very, very grateful. And some people said, ‘Well, maybe his time has come.’ I hoped it had, and it did,” said Janney.

“It’s like a dream,” said Joel Rosario.

Jockey Joel Rosario is a rising star, and it’s the first Derby win for a Hall of Fame trainer.

“It means everything for me. I always dreamed of this day, and it finally came,” said Shug McGaughey.

A muddy track led to slow times. Orb finished in just over 2:02.

His next stop is the Preakness. That race is just two weeks away, coming up on May 18.
