BALTIMORE (AP) - The second leg of horse racing's Triple Crown leaves the starting gate this afternoon in Maryland and the trainer for Kentucky Derby winner Orb says he thinks his horse is ready.

 

   If he can defeat eight rivals in the 1 3-16-mile Preakness, at Pimlico, it would set up a Triple Crown try in the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.

 

   Orb, the even-money favorite today, extended his winning streak to five with a thrilling victory in the Derby two weeks ago, when jockey Joel Rosario patiently guided the colt from 17th to first in the final half mile over a sloppy track.

 

   In the Preakness, Orb will break from the No. 1 post, a spot that has seen only one winner - Tabasco Cat in 1994 - since 1961.

 

   The latest forecast calls for a 50 percent chance of rain with temperatures reaching the low 70s.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon is giving a mixed review to Missouri's 2013 legislative session.

   The Democratic governor praised lawmakers for boosting funding for education and mental health in the session that ended Friday evening. And he complimented them for passing a bill that would replenish an insolvent state fund for disabled workers.

   But Nixon criticized the Republican-led Legislature for failing to expand Medicaid health coverage to an estimated 260,000 lower-income adults, and for failing to pass a comprehensive overhaul of the state's tax credit programs.

   Nixon implied that he likely will veto a projected $700 million income tax cut. He also cited potential legal issues with a bill seeking to nullify federal gun control regulations.

   Nixon reserved judgment on whether he believes the Legislature's proposed $25 billion operating budget is balanced.

Employees at a St. Charles Chuck E. Cheese are being praised for how they dealt with a child being left behind yesterday.

The St. Charles police say a two-year-old boy was left behind at the restaurant by his daycare. He was one of 14 kids taken to the Chuck E Cheese by two women who work for Rich & Little Daycare in Moline Acres. Fox 2 reports that witnesses say there were just too many kids for only two employees.

Chuck E. Cheese employees noticed the boy wandering around and called police. The officers said the employees handled the situation perfectly. The boy has been reunited with his mother. An investigation into the situation is ongoing.
