2012 Preakness Winner: I'll Have Another Wins Again, Running Down Bodemeister In Closing Stretch

The 2012 Preakness Stakes has been run, and in an echo of the 2012 Kentucky Derby, I'll Have Another ran down Bodemeister in the closing stretch to win by a neck. Bodemeister, the favorite at 2-1, was in front for much of the race and entered the stretch with a good sized lead. Jockey Mario Gutierrez made his move, though, and I'll Have Another was able to close the distance and overcome Bodemeister in a thrilling finish. Creative Cause came in third.

The race was a bit slow in the pace, which some thought would favor Bodemeister. That turned out just fine for I'll Have Another, who will now move on to try for the third jewel in the Triple Crown, something that hasn't been successfully attempted since 1978.

I'll Have Another will be looking to get the second leg of the Triple Crown after capturing the 2012 Kentucky Derby.

2012 Preakness Picks: Bodemeister May Have Best Chance Of Winning

The 2012 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico will take place on Saturday. The winner of the Kentucky Derby, I'll Have Another, is attempting to win the second leg of the Triple Crown. Although the odds will be against him, he is the only horse in the running that can move one step closer to history with another unexpected win.

I'll Have Another saw his odds improve with the recent news that Kentucky Derby participants Dullahan and Union Rags will be skipping the Preakness and Gemologist is out for the remainder of the Triple Crown

From the Kentucky Derby betting favorites, that just leaves Bodemeister, who was the odds-on favorite to win. Bodemeister, if you recall, finished second at Churchill Downs and only a frantic sprint in the home stretch was able to secure the victory for I'll Have Another.

Bodemeister certainly looked impressive in that performance and he is likely to put up another solid run at the Peakness. Can I'll Have Another catch and pass him again? It seems unlikely.

2012 Preakness Stakes: Preview And Schedule

I'll Have Another was a decent mid-range pick to win the 2012 Kentucky Derby, and he proved his worth with a photo finish, edging out Bodemeister. I'll Have Another is coming into the Preakness on a three race winning streak, and he'll be looking to complete in the second part of the Triple Crown this upcoming Saturday at Pimlico.

I'll Have Another has competed in three races this year, and hasn't lost yet.
