Kentucky Derby winner Orb is the favorite for today's race.The record time for this race is 1:53 set by Secretariat in 1973, just as he set the records in the Derby and Belmont. He wasn't awarded the time until 39 years later, after decades of controversy, when forensic analysis proved beyond all doubt he broke the record set by Canonero II in 1971.Farma Way continues to hold the track record. . . .
