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).

    Love that photo! Grace and sheen on the horses, determination, silks, and mud on the jockeys. Sport of kings, indeed.

    The jockey on Animal Kingdom waited too long to make his move. As watched The close it was obvious that If the race had been a 1/16 of a mile longer Animal Kingdom would have won. I don't want to take Anything away from Shackleford cause he ran a great race. But it's been 33 years, Now 34 years since we've had a triple crown winner. We'll see what happens in two weeks at Belmont. I feel that if healthy Animal Kingdom will win it.
