I think this horse has a good chance to take it all.
Unfortunately no. Lack of early speed will probably trip him up at Pim. No an easy bet every year. Horse has been beautifully handled however. Wish them luck.
Disagree with the notion a lack of early speed trips him up at Pimlico. He won three times over a Gulfstream track that has a greater speed bias.
Departing in the ness may be the toughest opponent Orb has left in the Triple Crown..
But I say an above average chance for Orb.
Take my advise and do what you please
The Dodgers Suck. No Championships in 25 Years. HAHA
Did they change the Preakness to 5.5f ???
Better than most other 3 years old.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Wouldn't it be better to ask this question after it's certain he'll be in the Preakness field? And in the Belmont field? My feeling is that asking this question this early jinxes the horse.
Racehorses are so fragile, even the most sound ones. They bruise a foot, they get an abcess, they cast themselves in their stall, the get a respiratory infection, they get a quarter crack...

If he stays healthy, the Preakness will be the stumbling block. He will have a HUGE home-court advantage at Belmont. I would vote YES right now.
Facing the highly rated Claiborne runner Departing is Orb's biggest obstacle to clear.
Departing?? Wow, if he is really Orbs biggest "obstacle" in the preakness that certainly makes his road to the triple crown alot easier. He doesnt belong on the same track as Orb.
