Orb Gearing Up For Cigar Mile Start
Kentucky Derby winner Orb (Malibu Moon-Lady Liberty, by Unbridled) has had his first trackwork gallop since finishing tailed out in last month's Jockey Club Gold Cup as he prepares for a possible tilt at the Gr1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct on November 20, reports bloodhorse.com. While the Breeders' Cup has definitely been ruled out, Hall Of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey says he is in no hurry to decide which race to tackle next. "I'm trying to get him started again and go from there. I'll make up my mind in a couple of weeks. "I'll just fool with him and see where it takes us," said McGaughey.
