Oxbow hits bull’s-eye at Preakness

Kentucky Derby winner and prerace favorite Orb finishes 4th
Oxbow and jockey Gary Stevens led the Preakness from start to finish, and the 3-year-old colt upset Orb to ruin yet another Triple Crown bid and give trainer D. Wayne Lukas his sixth win at Pimlico and 14th Triple Crown victory.
Win, place, show: Gary Stevens and Oxbow finished first at the Preakness on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. John Velasquez and Itsmyluckyday finished runner-up. Rosie Napravnik and Mylute finished third.
Despite Itsmyluckyday on Oxbow’s heels at the finish line, Gary Stevens and Oxbow led wire to wire to hold off John Velasquez’s charge and win the Preakness on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens came out of retirement and came out of his saddle astride a winner Saturday at Pimlico. He raced Oxbow to the Preakness championship, covering the 1-3/16th miles in 1 minute, 57.54 seconds to upset prerace favorite Orb.
Orb and jockey Joel Rosario finished fourth at the Preakness on Saturday. The Kentucky Derby winner was a 3-5 favorite in Saturday’s race, but his five-race winning streak ended on an overcast, windy day at Pimlico Race Course.
D. Wayne Lukas “put me on the map,” Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens said.
And they’re off! And Oxbow led from start to finish Saturday to win the second leg of the Triple Crown and give trainer D. Wayne Lukas and jockey Gary Stevens another victory for their Hall of Fame résumés.
