Though Hall of Fame horseman Shug McGaughey originally planned to bring Phipps Stable and Stuart Janney III's Malibu Moon colt to the upstate New York racetrack Aug. 7, he could remain in Maryland until next week.
Orb is working his way back to racing at Fair Hill, the Elkton, Md. training center where he's been stabled since June 9, the day after finishing third in the Belmont Stakes (gr. I).
Trainer Shug McGaughey said June 2 that Orb definitely will be pointed toward the June 8 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) following the colt's half-mile work in :48 and gallop-out of five furlongs in a sharp 1:00 2/5.
