Pimlico: Preakness Stakes (Grade 1) 1m1½f, dirt, 3yo
I’LL HAVE ANOTHER (Doug O’Neill/Mario Gutierrez) is on course to be the first Triple Crown winner for 24 years after overwhelming Bodemeister in the Preakness Stakes.
Bodemeister set a more comfortable pace than he did in the Kentucky Derby but I’ll Have Another was able to catch him at the wire to score by about a neck.
Third place was taken by Creative Cause, who tired after trying to follow Bodemeister.
I’ll Have Another, sent off 3.2-1, stopped the clock at 1m55.94s.
