And then we've got the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years.
BALTIMORE — I’ll Have Another waited a little longer to catch Bodemeister in the stretch this time, and now that he’s done it twice in a row it’s time for a Triple Crown try in the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.
With a breathtaking closing rush, the smooth-striding colt won the Preakness Stakes by a neck at Pimlico Race Course on a sunny Saturday, a dramatic finish that topped his win two weeks ago in the Kentucky Derby.Just so everyone knows, I won't be betting on the Belmont. A single bet from me can change history. And not in a good way.
I'm staying out of this because I'll Have Another should have a fighting chance. He deserves it.
