Preakness 2012 Results: I'll Have Another Edges Out Bodemeister

I'll Have Another is now in position to become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the Triple Crown, after rallying to upset favorite Bodemeister and win the 137th running of the Preakness Stakes on Saturday night at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, MD. I'll Have Another finished the 1 3/16 mile track in 1:55.94.

"We're thinking Triple Crown, baby," said Doug O'Neill, trainer of I'll Have Another (via ESPN). "He's a special horse. We'll see how he comes out of it, and if he comes out of it in good shape, we're heading to New York, baby."

Bodemeister led nearly the entire way before being neck-in-neck with I'll Have Another down the stretch. Bodemeister came into the race as a 3-2 favorite while I'll Have Another entered with 3-1 odds.

I'll Have Another will look to win the Triple Crown at the 2012 Belmont Stakes, which take place on June 9 at 6:35 p.m. EST at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.
