(Horse racing) Kentucky Derby winner Orb draws rail for Preakness
(05-16 14:22)

Kentucky Derby winner Orb drew the rail for Saturday's US$1 million Preakness Stakes and was made the even-money early favorite for the second jewel in US flat racing's Triple Crown.
Nine horses were entered for the 1 3/16-mile Preakness at Pimlico Race Course.
Joel Rosario, who won the US$10 million Dubai Cup aboard Animal Kingdom in March, will again be aboard Orb.
Rosario piloted the colt to a 2 1/2-length victory over 34-1 longshot Golden Soul on a sloppy track at Churchill Downs on May 4. The victory gives Orb a chance to become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to capture US flat racing's Triple Crown of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes.
Only 11 horses have completed the coveted treble.
