WATCH: Tom Brady is pumped about Orb's win at Kentucky Derby

Brady is pretty pumped about Orb. ( Brady is pretty pumped about Orb. (

While Robert Griffin III didn’t fare so well in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday -- he says he lost a “little money” wagering on Palace Malice -- Matt Schaub’s wife wasn’t the only one to find success with winner Orb.

That list also includes Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who got a little excited when jockey Joel Rosario’s horse pulled away from the field late on the backstretch at Churchill Downs on Satruday.

Brady was at the Derby the night after attending the Barnstable Brown Gala (pictured at said event in a Fedora hat here) in Louisville. It was the 25th anniversary of said Gala, which has raised over $9 million in the past seven years to help fight diabetes and obesity at the University of Kentucky School of Medicine.

Soon after Brady’s celebration begins in the video below, former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi joins the extreme bro hug, and he appears to be followed by Broncos receiver Wes Welker.

According to CSNNE, Brady is hugging Ogden Phipps II, the son of Dinny Phipps --- the co-owner of Orb. And Brady is so pleased because, writes the Boston Herald, Brady put $4,700 on Orb. That would have netted him about $25,000.

Hey, it’s not winning the Super Bowl anything, but since it’s been eight years since the Patriots won the league title, Orb’s victory will have to do for now.
