Derby Winner Orb Faces a Friend in the Preakness
Updated: Friday, May 17 2013, 05:21 PM EDT
Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Illinois Derby victor Departing played together as colts in the lush pastures of Claiborne Farm in central Kentucky.
But it will be all business on Saturday when they meet for the first time on the racetrack in the $1 million Preakness Stakes.
Orb is aiming for the second jewel of the Triple Crown, and a chance at immortality three weeks later in the Belmont Stakes as the first horse to sweep the series since Affirmed in 1978.
Departing could be Orb's main obstacle as the leading "new shooter" in the Preakness. "New shooters" are the fresh horses who bypass the Kentucky Derby and join the Triple Crown two weeks later at Pimlico.
The draw for the race is later Wednesday.
