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).

    the only reason they run so fast in the kentucky derby is cause the glue factory is right down the street. thousands of race horses and grey hounds end up this way...
