I’ll Have Another wins Preakness in photo finish over Bodemeister (Video)

I’ll Have Another came charging from behind to beat Bodemeister at the Preakness in Baltimore on Saturday and now has won the first two legs of the Triple Crown. The comeback win was a near repeat of the Kentucky Derby, and it puts I’ll Have Another in position to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. We’re guessing he just becomes the 12th horse since 1978 to win the first two legs before losing at the Belmont Stakes.

    It is hard to realize how little respect this horse has gotten.  Do you realize he has won seven races, including the Santa Anita Derby, Kentucky Derby and now the Preakness, and has not been favored in any of them.

    I give this horse a decent chance to win the Belmont because he has not been overly raced in his career and he has decent speed along with his finishing kick.  He also is very game down the stretch.

    He reminds me of Affirmed, the last Triple Crown winner, who edged Alydar to win all three events.  He was not dominant, but always had jsut enough to win.
