“I thought it was breathtaking,” said McGaughey. “It sent cold chills up my back…I couldn’t be more thrilled…Right now I’m on cloud nine. The way he was striding today, the way he held his leads through the lane, I thought … it was spectacular.”

Orb breezed in :47.18 for a half mile, with a gallop out in :59.54 for five furlongs. Listen to McGaughey’s 8-minute interview with the media following the workout. He also discusses competitors Oxbow, Departing and Will Take Charge.
