Every horse in the Kentucky Derby arrived to Churchill Downs with questions to answer. The only one who passed the test with flying colors was Orb. That's why he enters the Preakness Stakes as the prohibitive favorite and a legitimate Triple Crown threat.
After winning the Kentucky Derby earlier this month, Orb is unsurprisingly the heavy favorite to win. As we saw at Churchill Downs, there's been some rain falling at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Unlike what we saw in early May, however, the track at Pimlico won't be as sloppy.

Sometimes when you prepare for a huge opportunity before it comes, it’s almost as if you created it for yourself. That is what Chris Camozzi did, in order to land his latest fight on the UFC on FX 8 card vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
