It was the 137th running of the Preakness Stakes today, held at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Earlier this month 3-year-old Chestnut Colt ‘I’ll Have Another’ along with 25-year-old jockey Mario Gutierrez ran the Kentucky Derby with 15/1 odds of winning, they won overtaking Bodemeister along the final stretch. In the running of the Preakness, ‘I’ll Have Another’ and Mario Gutierrez had 3-1 odds, they won in similar fashion overtaking Bodemeister winning by only a head. If ‘I’ll Have Another’ wins the 144th running of the Belmont Stakes held on June 9th, 2012 he will become the first horse to win the triple crown in 34 years.
