Orb gallops at Belmont

MGN Online

NEW YORK (AP) - Trainer Shug McGaughey is still thinking Belmont Stakes for his Kentucky Derby winner after Orb galloped a mile Thursday morning at Belmont Park.

It was Orb's first trip to the track since finishing fourth in the Preakness on Saturday, and McGaughey said he's pleased with the way his colt got around the track under exercise rider Jennifer Patterson.

If Orb shows up for the June 8 Belmont, it would create a rematch with Oxbow, who won the Preakness by 1 3/4 lengths. Lukas already has said Oxbow's a go for the Belmont, and on Thursday said he'll also send out Will Take Charge (seventh in the Preakness).
