Kentucky Derby Winner Orb continues to prepare for the upcoming Preakness race on Saturday.

All eyes will be on Orb as a hopeful contender for the Triple Crown – which was last awarded to Affirmed in 1978. Preakness is the second of the three races known as The Triple Crown.

Pimlico Race Course, home of the Preakness Stakes, first opened its doors on October 25, 1870, and is the second oldest racetrack in the United States.
