2012 Preakness Video: Relive I'll Have Another's Exciting Finish

In case you missed it Saturday, there was a very exciting finish to the 2012 Preakness Stakes. I'll Have Another yet again edged Bodemeister down the stretch to keep the hopes of a Triple Crown alive.

The video of the race captures perfectly the excitement of the finish which was the best in some time. Three weeks from now, I'll Have Another will look to break the 34-year drought of a Triple Crown winner at the Belmont Stakes in New York.

Oddly enough, I'll Have Another won the Kentucky Derby by 1 1/2 lengths then won the Belmont by a neck, the same exact margins that the last Triple Crown winner Affirmed did in those races in 1978. Will history be able to repeat itself?

Triple Crown 2012: I'll Have Another Could Become First Since Affirmed To Accomplish Feat

I'll Have Another did it again on Saturday, coming from behind to win a leg of horse racing's vaunted Triple Crown. I'll Have Another's victim at the 2012 Preakness Stakes was once again Bodemeister, who also fell short in the Kentucky derby a few weeks ago. I'll Have Another and 25-year-old jockey Mario Gutierrez are now one win away from capturing the first Triple Crown in 34 years.

Affirmed was the last to win the Triple Crown, in 1978. Since then, 11 horses have won both the Derby and Preakness but have fallen short in the Belmont, the final leg of the journey. The most recent to come up was Big Brown, in 2008, with Smarty Jones also missing out on the Triple Crown with a 2004 loss at Belmont.

The 2012 Belmont Stakes will take place in three weeks, on June 9th at Belmont Park in New York.

The 11 horses that have captured the Triple Crown:

1919 Sir Barton
1930 Gallant Fox
1935 Omaha
1937 War Admiral
1941 Whirlaway
1943 Count Fleet
1946 Assault
1948 Citation
1973 Secretariat
1977 Seattle Slew
1978 Affirmed
