Preakness Results 2012: I'll Have Another Wins Preakness In Thrilling Fashion

Update: Full Preakness results are here.

Following the 2012 Kentucky Derby, there was a belief that despite finishing in second, Bodemeister might have been the best horse. Heading down the stretch of the 2012 Preakness, it looked like that theory may have some merit, as Bodemeister again held the lead. However, I'll Have Another delivered a repeat of his performance at The Derby, as he finished strong to pass Bodemeister and win the 2012 Preakness.Creative Cause finished the race third.

With the victory, I'll Have Another will head to Belmont Park for the Belmont Stakes with the opportunity to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. I'll Have Another will be the 12th horse since Affirmed to enter the Belmont Stakes having won the first two races of the Triple Crown. The last horse to enter the Belmont Stakes with a chance to win the Triple Crown was Big Brown back in 2008
