Orb won the Kentucky Derby, now the colt is going to try and do something that only has happened twice in 60 years, win the Preakness Stakes from the rail.
The last time was in 1994 when Tabasco Cat along with five-time Preakness winners, D. Wayne Lukas (trainer) and Pat Day (jockey) teamed up that year and celebrated a rare finish. Having pulled the dreaded inside post position (1), Tabasco Cat rallied to win the second leg of the Triple Crown. It is the only horse to do so over the last 53 years. He did so by beating Derby winner Go For Gin in dramatic fashion.
While it ran the 1 3/16-mile race in 1:56.40, it entered a small club of horses to finish in the first post. Bally Ache won the Preakness from inside the rail in 1960.
