The 2012 Preakness was billed as a rematch between Kentucky Derby winner I’ll Have Another and runner-up Bodemeister. It was exactly that. In the end, I’ll Have Another went on to win the 137th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course. His next stop is the Belmont Stakes in New York for a chance to win the Triple Crown in June. The last Triple Crown winner was Affirmed in 1978.
Take a look at I’ll Have Another from his Kentucky Derby win to training at Pimlico Race Course and his Preakness Stakes win.
