Orb to Work Half-Mile at Belmont Park Monday

After a rainy week at Belmont Park, Kentucky Derby winner Orb is set to breeze a half-mile over the main track Monday morning before shipping to Pimlico for Preakness 2013.

 

“He’ll break off at the half-mile pole by  himself, breeze a half and hope he finishes up good and gallops out somewhat – not strong –  he’s fit enough,” said the colt’s Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey. “I just sort of want to put him in the ball game.”

 



Orb has galloped the past several days with the main track listed as muddy on Friday morning and sloppy on Saturday.

 

“It’s been a little bit difficult this week with the track that way,” McGaughey said. “This morning, with those dogs up, he was looking at those dogs and jumping here and there, but [exercise rider Jennifer Patterson] keeps telling me not to worry. So, I’m not going to worry. I’m a bit more uptight than I was last time. Not because of anything, but just you’ve got one under your belt so you’re hoping maybe something good can happen to make it a fun three weeks. What will be, will be.”
