2012 Preakness Winner: I'll Have Another Outruns Bodemeister

25 year old upstart jockey Mario Gutierrez is now just one win away from taking the vaunted and elusive Triple Crown.

The jockey and his horse, I'll Have Another, won last weekend's Kentucky Derby and took the 2012 Preakness Stakes this afternoon in Baltimore, defeating favorite Bodemeister.

Bodemeister started strong and had the lead for most of the race right out of the starting gates. But in the last 200 yards or so, I'll Have Another made his move to the outside and took the lead and the eventual win.

Both jockey and horse look to complete the elusive trifecta in three weeks at the Belmont Stakes.
