Maryland’s Kentucky Derby Winner Has Many Local Ties

Orb, is the second horse with Maryland ties to win the Derby in the past three years. The 2011 winner, Animal Kingdom, was trained in Fair Hill Maryland. Orb’s bloodline has a Bel Air connection…

The Pons Country Life Farm out of Bel Air. They own a quarter of Malibu Moon, Orb’s sire. Orb’s owner, Baltimore County resident Stuart S. Janney.

It looks like Orb is gearing for the Preakness in two weeks. Could we see a Triple Crown winner? How cool would that be, a horse with Maryland ties. We’ll wait and see.
