138th Preakness Stakes

A moment from this year's Kentucky Derby

Okay, in our flyover description for this event we said that Orb, the winner of the Kentucky Derby, is looking to win the second event in the Triple Crown.  We don't, exactly, know that's true.  You see, Orb is absolutely going to be racing in the Preakness (barring any unforeseen circumstances), but we shouldn't anthropomorphize the horse.  We are sure that Orb has been told how big the race is, but we aren't sure that Orb quite gets it.  It will, however, be interesting to see if Orb takes the event.  It will certainly make the Belmont more exciting.
