The Preakness Stakes - So Much For Orb

Orb, the overwhelming favorite after winning the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, finished a disappointing fourth in the Preakness Stakes as Oxbow (at 15-1 odds) went wire to wire to win the race.
So once again there will be no Triple Crown winner in horse racing for the 35th consecutive year. The last horse to do so was Affirmed in 1978, a year after Seattle Slew accomplished the feat. But the greatest of them all, Secretariat, did it as well in 1973... 40 years ago.
Enjoy this video of Secretariat sealing the deal of the Triple Crown by crushing his foes in the Belmont Stakes.
