Preakness Results 2012: I'll Have Another Takes The Win, Runs Down Bodemeister Again

I'll Have Another won the 2012 Preakness Stakes on Sunday, running down Bodemeister in the closing stretch. It almost seemed a replay of the 2012 Kentucky Derby, with Bodemeister again in front for much of the race and I'll Have Another closing the gap in the final stretch and winning by a neck.

Jockey Mario Gutierrez made his move late, but I'll Have Another was good for the accelleration and was able to chase down Bodemeister. The race had been run at a slightly slow pace, which some thought would be to Bodemeister's advantage, but as it turned out I'll Have Another handled that just fine. Creative Cause came in third. I'll Have Another now moves on to try for the third jewel in the Triple Crown, something that has not been successfully attempted since 1978.

Stay tuned to this storystream for more from the 2012 Preakness Stakes, and don't miss SB Nation's horse racing blog And Down The Stretch They Come.
