There will be no Triple Crown winner again this year, but Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Preakness victor Oxbow could face each other again in the upcoming Belmont Stakes.

Oxbow captured his Preakness win, ridden by Gary Stevens, by one-and-3-quarters lengths over Itsmyluckyday on Saturday, although the winning time of 1:57.54 was the slowest time since the 1961 race.

Mylute finished third, and Derby winner and pre-race 3-5 favorite Orb was fourth.
