Claiborne-born Orb to be tested in Preakness by Claiborne-owned Departing

When Kentucky Derby winner Orb tries to win the second leg of the Triple Crown in Saturday's Preakness Stakes, he'll have to fend off Departing, who was born on the same farm — Claiborne in Bourbon County. The matchup pits the Hancocks of Claiborne against Phipps Stable and Stuart Janney III, who have been working together and against each other for decades and are looking forward to another go-round.
