War of Will wins Preakness Stakes

A horse ambulance removes the body of Congrats Gal after the horse died on the track after crossing the finish line in the Miss Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore Maryland

There was a freakish sight for the entire Preakness Stakes on Saturday after horse Bodexpress went the entire length of the race without a jockey. War of Will, ridden by Tyler Gaffalione won. "Gary, according to theCourier-Journal, said he would pay up to "$5 million to any of those horses - up to $20 million for all four - if they finished ahead of Maximum Security in a race before January 1, 2020. The 1951 race was the last time the Preakness was run without the top four finishers from the Derby.

Tyler Gaffalione, the jockey of 2019 Preakness Stakes victor War of Will, says the horse "relaxed beautifully" and the victory is surreal.

Congrats Gal faltered in the upper stretch of the Miss Preakness Stakes in 83F (28C) heat and was eased to the finish line.

"Once we saw Maximum Security out and saw a lot of those Derby horses fall by the wayside, we thought it's worth the gamble in terms of the supplement", said Marshall Gramm, the owner of Warrior's Charge. Casse said to Barber with a Cheshire cat grin.

"You feel good with expertise", Elliott Walden, president and CEO of WinStar Farm, said Wednesday, after Improbable drew the drew the No. 4 post and was made the 5-2 morning-line favorite. We go in and fix it, and I guess, what they're telling me - the engineers - the pressure and everything, it takes so much time to build up, clogged, it's just old infrastructure.


A Baffert horse has won the Preakness seven times. "They actually run a great race sometimes". "I've had horses that try to win".

In most years, the main intrigue in the Preakness is whether the Kentucky Derby victor prevailed and kept alive the chances for a Triple Crown bid. I wish I could - whatever it is, it seems to work at times really well. War of Will crossed the finish 1 1/4 lengths ahead of Everfast, who edged Owendale by a nose.

Bodexpress, sitting in the No. 9 spot at Pimlico Race Course, had trouble getting into the starting gate. "I'm not even calling it redemption".

"The horse broke well, " Gaffalione said following his first Triple Crown triumph.

Watch as Larry Collmus, the voice of the Triple Crown, calls a chaotic 144th Preakness Stakes that included a riderless horse and a big win for War of Will two weeks after being interfered with in the Derby. He deserved it more than anything. "We just had to get a little bit lucky, and today was our day".
