2012 Preakness Winner: I'll Have Another Takes The 2012 Preakness Stakes

I'll Have Another took another step towards winning a Triple Crown. After winning last weekend's Kentucky Derby, the horse outlasted the favorite to win the 2012 Preakness Stakes in Baltimore.

Bodemeister -- just like in the Kentucky Derby -- came in as the favorite and lead for most of the race out of the starting gates. But I'll Have Another ran a great race and took the lead and the eventual win in the last 200 yards of the race, passing Boddemeister on the outside.

Mario Gutierrez, who had never jockeyed a horse prior to last weekends Derby, will look to complete the elusive trifecta with I'll Have Another at the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.
