Kentucky Derby 2011 Results: Full Order Of Finish And Payouts

Check out our exhaustive Preakness Stakes coverage.

The 2011 Kentucky Derby is in the books and now we can look ahead to the Preakness in two weeks at Pimlico. The second of the Triple Crown is the point at which we find out if one horse has a chance to strike it big. Some think Animal Kingdom, this year's Derby winner, has a good chance given his racing style and the profile at Preakness. 

Before we look ahead, however, here's the full finishing order from the 2011 Kentucky Derby and some additional thoughts.

We start with Archarcharch who stumbled early and gave us a scary moment when he was taken off on an ambulance after the race. No one wants to see a horse put down. Fortunately, his diagnosis of a lateral condylar fracture is not life threatening. 

The race itself was extremely slow as explained by Matt Gardner:

In this light, it's pretty amazing Animal Kingdom was able to make up the ground he was in the final furlongs.  On the other side of the coin, front-running Shackleford had everything handed to him on a silver platter to win the Derby - an uncontested and easy lead.  While his 4th place finish was nice, a top quality frontrunner would have won yesterday's Derby gate-to-wire.
