2012 Triple Crown: I'll Have Another Has Triple Crown Within Reach

A horse has not won the Triple Crown in nearly 40 years. After I'll Have Another won the 2012 Kentucky Derby two weeks ago and knocked off favorite Bodemeister, it seemed inevitable that there would be no Triple Crown winner for yet another year.

And then on Saturday, everything changed.

I'll Have Another chased down Bodemeister once again in the home stretch of the 2012 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and is now one little win away from taking home the most elusive title in sports. The Belmont Stakes will not be an easy victory, but I'll Have Another has proved now that he cannot be counted out, no matter how far behind he is in the home stretch.

Here are the full results from the 2012 Preakness Stakes:

1. I'll Have Another
2. Bodemeister
3. Creative Cause
4. Zetterholm
5. Teeth of the Dog
6. Optimizer
7. Cozzetti
8. Tiger Walk
9. Deddy Nose Best
10. Went the Day Well
11. Pretension
