I’ll Have Another, I’ll Have Another

Like Kentucky Derby, like Preakness: 3-year-old colt races past Bodemeister and into the Belmont Stakes
Mario Gutierrez and I’ll Have Another did it again, chasing down Mike Smith and prerace favorite Bodemeister to win the Preakness in almost identical fashion as the Kentucky Derby. I’ll Have Another now owns the first two legs of the Triple Crown.
“It’s not me; it’s him. It’s all about the horse,” jockey Mario Gutierrez said. “He just keeps proving people wrong. I’m so happy for him because he’s such a great horse. He has a tremendous kick in the end.”
The 1 3/16-mile Preakness unfolded the same way as the 1 1/4-mile Kentucky Derby, but when it came time for Bodemeister to dig in, it was I’ll Have Another who found another gear under young jockey Mario Gutierrez and surged past the tiring pacesetter in the shadow of the wire.
By bolting past Bodemeister – again – this time in Saturday’s Preakness, all that stands in the way of I’ll Have Another’s Triple Crown is the Belmont Stakes in three weeks. And Bodemeister, twice the best man in the first two legs of the Triple Crown, will not be running: “He’s getting off the bus here,” trainer Bob Baffert said.
