Derby winner Orb is all set to take on Preakness winner Oxbow in the Belmont Stakes following a good workout on the track.
Brian Monzo gives you the lowdown on this weekend’s horse racing action.
Trainer Shug McGaughey is still thinking Belmont Stakes for his Kentucky Derby winner after Orb had no problems galloping a mile Thursday morning at Belmont Park.
It appears a rematch is in the making. Both trainers are giving every indication their classic-winning colts will run in the Belmont on June 8.
Oxbow led from start to finish. It was the sixth Preakness victory for Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas.
All eyes will be on Kentucky Derby winner Orb in the Preakness Stakes on Saturday.
Since 2000, seven post-time favorites have won the Preakness. There is no doubt that this year’s post-time favorite will be Kentucky Derby winner Orb.
It’s hard to surmise a scenario where we aren’t talking about yet another pending attempt to end racing’s long wait for the twelfth Triple Crown winner after this year’s Preakness.
Monzo previews the racing action at Monmouth Park.
Morning-line favorite Orb wins the 139th Kentucky Derby.
Black Onyx has been scratched from the 139th Kentucky Derby. The field is now down to 19.
Rain and extra security measures aren’t hindering thousands of poncho-covered racing fans from filling Churchill Downs.
Honestly, I can look at the field and find a reason for 15 of the 20 horses to win.
After many months of analysis, it’s time for everyone to make their picks for the Kentucky Derby. I have been high on both Goldencents and Revolutionary for a few weeks and find no reason to jump ship now.
This year is the first time that colts making the field in the Kentucky Derby qualified under a new points system. In years past, colts qualified based on graded stakes earnings.
