Kentucky Derby winner Orb is the even-money favorite for the Preakness, so the biggest topics leading up to the weekend have, obviously, been about his chances and how to beat him on Saturday.
“The jockey was just here," Mylute jockey Rosie Napravnik, the fiery 25-year-old, shot back. "Ask him.”
Though Napravnik eventually talked quite a bit about her thoughts on Orb and her possible strategies coming out of the gate -- Orb drew post-position No. 1, while Mylute is at No. 5 -- she has her own worries about Mylute.
Namely, not getting too far behind Orb.
Mylute broke slowly out of the gate at the Kentucky Derby and sat with Orb at the beginning of the race until Orb began pulling away. Napravnik, who began her racing career in Maryland, said she got too far behind Orb, but can change that on Saturday.
