Orb Draws the Rail in Preakness
Click here to open this alert in a new page

Only minutes prior to Wednesday’s Preakness post position draw in Baltimore, Shug McGaughey--the trainer of Orb (Malibu Moon)--admitted to HRTV’s Zoe Cadman that, in an ideal world, he would get the eight hole for his GI Kentucky Derby hero. The racing Gods, however, had other plans for Saturday’s likely favorite and the thriving bay was granted the rail instead. On the morning line, the colt was installed the even-money choice in the nine-horse field.

"There is nothing we can do about it," said McGaughey moments after the draw. "It wasn't the one I would have picked out, but it’s just a nine-horse field and it all evens itself out. [Jockey] Joel [Rosario] will know what to do."

While McGaughey was, for the most part, unconcerned after drawing the rail, Orb’s regular exercise rider Jenn Patterson appeared to offer a much stronger reaction to Saturday's position in the gate.

"We’ll get her calmed down, she’ll be fine," said McGaughey. "They always told me the rail was the shortest way around, so maybe that’s what we’ll do."
