Kentucky Derby winner Orb has been made the morning-line favorite in a field of 14 horses entered for the Belmont Stakes.
Experts, enthusiasts, owners and journalists agreed – Orb seemed like the best chance at a Triple Crown champion since Affirmed in 1978.
Oxbow has won the Preakness, ruining Orb's bid to capture the Triple Crown.
Baltimore police said Preakness revelers behaved themselves for the most part in the hours leading up to the big race.
Debt Ceiling took the win for the 2-year-old pack at Pimlico Saturday as he captured the $100,000 Rollicking Stakes purse.
