Orb closed from 17th to win the Derby by 21/2 lengths last week, and is expected to have a final workout on Monday before being vanned to Baltimore for next Saturday's Preakness.

The 3-year-old colt has won five in a row, and seems to be getting better with every race.

"He's filled out so much physically. I look at him and I can't believe what I'm seeing from last November to now," McGaughey said. "Mentally, everything's come together. ... I couldn't be more pleased with his development."

Meanwhile, Orb's jockey Joel Rosario continues to stay on a winning role, riding the winners at Belmont Park's feature races the past two days.
