NBC on Yahoo! Sports

Orb cruised to a Kentucky Derby victory two weeks ago, winning by two and a half lengths at Churchill Downs. He is now onto the Preakness, where he is an even-money favorite to win the second leg of the Triple Crown. But how would the three-year-old colt fare against the fastest horses over the last 20 years?

Thanks to the folks at, we can completely disregard the laws of space and time with a simulated race featuring the greatest Preakness champs in recent history to see how Orb stacks up.
