    Most news sports articles I've seen all agree that Orb is the overwhelming favorite to win the Preakness Stakes today.

    If there's one thing that brings a little doubt is that he is starting from the #1 post position and he had done his best starting from the outside. The last horse to win the Preakness from the #1 post was Tobasco Cat in 1994.

    Also, the latest weather prediction is for a 50% rain chance at Pimlico.

    The last Triple Crown Winner was Affirmed in 1978. A long time ago!

    Oxbow ridden by Gary Stevens wins the Preakness.

    No Triple Crown winner this year.
