Preakness Results: Full Order Of Finish, With Shackleford On Top

The Preakness Stakes didn’t go according to plan for Animal Kingdom, but he gave it one heck of a run. Coming from behind, as he usually does, Animal Kingdom began a methodical movement forward as the field entered the home stretch at Pimlico. As they came down to the wire, Animal Kingdom was just to the outside of Shackleford, fighting and clawing to pry the lead away from the Kentucky Derby pace-setting.

But it wasn’t to be as Shackleford held off the rest of the field and took the Preakness Stakes with a wire-to-wire win. Unlike the Kentucky Derby, there was no late fade for Shackleford, and the rest of the field was powerless to reel him in.

Animal Kingdom finished second by about a half a length, followed by Astrology in third. A late kick netted Dialed In a fourth-place finish, but early traffic threw off his race and he was unable to recover. Dance City finished fifth, followed by Mucho Macho Man in sixth.
