2013 Preakness picks
By Rick Morris
WIN: Orb – A gutless pick (“but I’m a gutless man,” as my colleague Kyle Ross has been known to end his sentences), but he’s the franchise in this pack and the best Triple Crown threat in years. Don’t fear the rail position.
PLACE: Goldencents – His awful Derby trip was the only bad one he’s had at this level and his upside is enough to make you think he should crack the money in what seems like a mediocre field at Pimlico.
SHOW: Departing – He’s been getting better and you certainly want a horse who’s pointing in the right direction.
