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.
Orb drew the unfortunate rail, taking the first post. Let’s break down the field, starting with the Kentucky Derby winner.
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.
Honestly, I can look at the field and find a reason for 15 of the 20 horses to win.
