TRAVERS STAKES

Travers Stakes: Orb takes on Palice Malice and Verrazano

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — Orb is back after a two-month escape from New York, and trainer Shug McGaughey is hoping his Kentucky Derby star returns to his winning ways in the $1 million Travers Stakes on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course.

After the Derby extended his win streak to five, Orb ran fourth in the Preakness and third in the Belmont Stakes on June 8. The next morning, the 3-year-old colt was vanned to Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton, Md., for rest and relaxation following the Triple Crown grind.
