Preakness Champ Oxbow to the Belmont
Barring an unforeseen problems, 2013 Preakness Stakes champion Oxbow will be headed to the Belmont Stakes and will likely be taking his stablemate Will Take Charge along for the run. Speaking to reporters the day after the race, trainer D. Wayne Lukas said both horses came out of the Preakness in fine shape and will likely both tackle the 1 ½ mile Belmont, to be run on Saturday, June 8, 2013 in Elmont, New York. Will Take Charge was seventh in the Preakness.
Decision on Kentucky Derby champ Orb still to be made
Having lost their chance at a Triple Crown by finishing fourth in the Preakness, the connections for Kentucky Derby winner Orb have a decision to make. Although well-placed at about the midpoint of the race, Orb simply failed to mount a charge in the Preakness after going off as the 3-5 favorite, with many hoping he’d become the first Triple Crown winner in 35 years. It could be that after a relatively tough campaign where he won five straight, Orb is out of gas.
Golden Soul to run for the third Triple Crown jewel
While it’s still a couple weeks until the field is officially set, other horses coming out of the Derby that skipped over the Preakness to take a shot at the Belmont include; second-place finisher Golden Soul, third-place finisher Revolutionary, Palace Malice, Giant Finish and the Todd Pletcher-trained Overanalyze. Pletcher has also said he is considering running the filly Unlimited Budget. Itsmyluckyday, who finished second to Oxbow, is one of the most notable likely out of the Belmont, as is third-place finisher Mylute. Stay tuned to OTB New York!
