2012 Preakness Winner: I'll Have Another Defeats Bodemeister In Baltimore

The race for the vaunted Triple Crown is still in play for I'll Have Another who won the 2012 Preakness Stakes after winning last weekend's Kentucky Derby.

Bodemeister came in as the favorite and had the lead for most of the race out of the starting gates, but I'll Have Another mounted a furious comeback on the outside and took the lead and the eventual win in the last 200 yards of the race.

25 year old upstart Mario Gutierrez has now won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness in his first two races as a professional jockey and will look to complete the elusive trifecta at the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.
