Preakness 2012 Results: I'll Have Another Edges Out Bodemeister Again, Wins 137th Preakness Stakes

The 2012 Preakness Stakes is in the books, and I'll Have Another is the winner, moving him one step closer to the ever-elusive Triple Crown. Much like the Kentucky Derby, favorite Bodemeister was in the lead through almost the entire race. I'll Have Another spent much of the race in third or fourth, but coming down the stretch the horse made his move and he chased down Bodemeister to take the win by a neck. Creative Cause came in third.

The final odds on I'll Have Another were 3-1, compared to Bodemeister's 2-1. The pace in the race was a little slow, favoring Bodemeister, but halfway through the stretch jockey Mario Gutierrez urged the horse on and that was good enough for the win. I'll Have Another is now only one win away from the Triple Crown, where he would be the first horse to win that honor since 1978.
