Preakness 2013 Contenders – Will Orb capture second jewel?

Congratulations to Kentucky Derby 2013 hero Orb, and it was nice to see Shug McGaughey saddle his first Derby winner as well. He looks like a runaway locomotive at this point and might be too hot to handle in Preakness 2013.

I don't know Kathy. I think Texas Bling is TOUGH!!!! The way the Derby played-out, I believe he would've been top 6.

Orb has now proven that he can run in any track conditions and will capture the second jewel.
