Shackleford wins Preakness

Shackleford won the Preakness Stakes on Saturday, edging Animal Kingdom to take the crown.

A full field of 14 horses competed in the 136th Preakness at the track at Pimlico in Baltimore, Maryland.

Animal Kingdom was favored to win after finishing first in the Kentucky Derby a couple weeks ago. It was the horse’s fourth start of the year.

The Preakness is one-third of thoroughbred horseracing’s Triple Crown, (Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes).

    Horses are gorgeous creatures. They need love and care just like cats and dogs. @Fake Cesar: you are an idiot. Shut up stupid! @banasy: hi.
