Johnny Love's Preakness picks

  • Updated: May 17, 2013 - 10:11 PM

I was asked a few times before the Kentucky Derby if I thought there was a chance a horse could win the Triple Crown since Affirmed last did it 35 years ago. Orb was my one and only choice and now he has a legitimate shot going into the second phase after his strong performance in the slop at Churchill Downs two weeks ago. His dominating victory by 2½ lengths in the Derby — while pulling away — makes it hard for me to believe that any of his rivals coming out of that same race can reverse the outcome of today’s race. The new shooters Orb will face today are entitled to move forward but still rank well below the favorite. I’ll be keying Orb in my exotic tickets while using some major players beneath him. Payoffs in the Preakness are not as attractive as they are in the Derby but still can pay handsomely. Over the past 15 years, the Exacta and Trifecta payouts are well above average.
