Kentucky Derby winner Orb is a heavy favorite to win the 138th running of the Preakness Stakes on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course. If he bests the field of nine, Orb — who is co-owned by Baltimore county resident Stuart Janney III — will be one big step closer to capturing horse racing’s first Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978. Look through photos of Orb leading up to the Preakness.
Orb, co-owned by Stuart Janney III, won Kentucky Derby glory Saturday — through the mud — in 2:02.89 to win by 261/27 lengths. Can Orb win the Triple Crown? He’ll have to prove himself again come May 18 at the Preakness Stakes in Baltimore, Maryland in the second leg of the thoroughbred racing competition.
