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?
