Kentucky Derby Results: Big Brown officially the winner A few minutes after viewers saw the Kentucky Derby, the official results were announced and Big Brown was crowned the winner of the 2008 Kentucky Derby. Big Brown was the odds favorite to win the race and after the most exiting two minutes in sports he became the second Derby contender to win from the outside post and the fourth favorite to ever win the Kentucky Derby. The official Kentucky Derby results have Big Brown as the winner and he is now undefeated in his four races. Clearly a gem and you can now put a price on him - the $2,000,000 Kentucky Derby purse.

 The official Kentucky Derby results have Eight Belle as finishing second, almost five lengths behind the winner Big Brown. Sadly, just after the race was over, Eight Belles collapsed on the track. Minutes later it was announced that the only filly racing at the Derby had broken both front ankles and was euthanized almost immediately. According to officials, there was nothing that could be done for Eight Belles but put her out of her misery. A very unfortunate turn of events, indeed, not only for owner Rick Porter and trainer Larry Jones, but for the horse-racing enthusiasts all over the world watching the Kentucky Derby. After the Kentucky Derby results were announced, we found out that Denis of Cork finished third in the 134th Run for the Roses. For full details and to watch a recording of the Kentucky Derby visit
