If you put a sentimental $2 bet in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes on the strapping colt owned by Baltimore’s Stuart Janney III, you weren’t alone, because Orb went off as the 2-1 favorite. But you should hope you bet him to show because he finished a strong third behind the winner, Palace Malice, and Preakness winner Oxbow. Orb, winner of the Kentucky Derby, was held off down the stretch by the two tiring leaders. Your $2 show bet paid $3.90. Not much solace if you bet Orb to win or were rooting for his Baltimore connections, but that’s why it’s called a horse race.
