2012 Preakness Stakes … WOW … ‘I’ll Have Another’ Wins Another … Fantastic Race Beats Bodemeister at the Finish by a Neck … Goes for Triple Crown at Belmont

 

The 2012 Preakness Stakes was one for the ages. The rematch between ‘Bodemeister’ and ‘I’ll Have Another’ did not disappoint …

‘I’ll Have Another’ won the 137th Preakness at the finish defeating ‘Bodemeister’ to take home the second jewel of the Triple crown. Two weeks following the Kentucky Derby that saw ‘I’ll Have Another’ defeat ‘Bodemeister’ coming from behind down the stretch, it was  de ja vous all over again.

It was exactly that. I’ll Have Another caught Bodemeister at the wire today to win the 137th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course and the first two races of the Triple Crown. He will go to the Belmont looking to become the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978.

‘I’ll Have Another’ ran a near perfect race even though the pace of the race was much slower than the Kentucky Derby. One would have thought that ‘Bodemeister’ would have had more than enough left in the tank to hold off ‘I’ll Have Another’. However, that was not the case. ‘I’ll Have Another’ in fact did have another as the California horse took the second jewel and will now go for the Triple Crown at the 1-1/2 mile Belmont in three weeks on June 9th.

No horse has won the Triple Crown for 34 years since 1978 since Affirmed. Why not, ‘I’ll Have Another’?

      Just from watching the highlights reels, wow, what an exciting finish.

      Cool name for the horse, too. That would be sweet if he could win the Triple Crown in June.

      =)
