Derby winner Orb named favorite in Preakness
BALTIMORE (AP) — Kentucky Derby winner Orb drew the rail in Saturday’s Preakness and was installed Wednesday as an overwhelming even-money favorite in the nine-horse race.
Orb will seek to keep alive his bid to become horse racing’s first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. Orb won the Derby by 2½ lengths as the betting favorite.
The brown colt is looking for his sixth straight victory as part of the smallest Preakness field since 2007. Govenor Charlie, trained by Bob Baffert, added his name to the list Wednesday for the 1 3/16th-mile race.
