Preakness 2012 Results: Reaction to the Race
Welcome everyone who didn't join me two weeks ago for the Kentucky Derby and welcome back to everyone who did. We've moved from Churchill Downs to Pimlico. I'll Have Another was the surprising victor in the Run for the Roses, but can he take a second leg in the Triple Crown? Or will Bodemeister get his revenge? We'll find out today in the 137th Preakness Stakes!
OK everyone who joined me today thank you for your time and attention. This was only my second experience covering a horse race so hopefully you enjoyed and hopefully I improved some over last time. Hopefully I see you all again in three weeks for the Belmont! Triple Crown!!

|9||I'll Have Another|
I'll Have Another about to get the Black-Eyed Susan blanket.
Purple is the color of royalty so that tells you all you need to know about I'll Have Another. What a great horse who had such little buzz until he won two weeks ago.
I'll Have Another is about to get the Tebow Treatment.
I can't wait to see the buzz coming out of this race and going forward into the next one. If you don't like sensationalism, don't watch ESPN.
Mario Gutierrez with his second Triple Crown win, can he make it three?
Looks like the tri was I'll Have Another, Bodemeister and Creative Cause.
I'll get you the full standings and payouts as soon as possible.
Have to be impressed with I'll Have Another. He has a huge heart and you can't count him out for a Triple Crown. He gets stronger as the race goes on. That's the name of the game at Belmont.
Creative Cause was gassed at the end, looked like he was out too fast, he didn't want to be in second place that early. Maybe held on for third.
And I'll Have Another got Bodemeister again!! The Triple Crown dream is still alive!!
HOME STRETCH!! I'LL HAVE ANOTHER MAKING A MOVE!!
Creative Cause may have gone out too quick.
Rosario has Creative Cause exactly where he wanted him just outside the leader.
Bode is far more conservative with his pace today.
It's time!! They're off!!
Let's see if there are any issues in the gates today.
I'll be glad to be wrong if Creative Cause takes it. He was my pick two weeks ago but I think this distance is perfect for Bodemeister.
I'm already feeling wrong for not including Went the Day Well.
OK, my Superfecta is: 7- Bodemeister, 6- Creative Cause, 9- I'll Have Another, 2- Teeth of the Dog.
The heart was with I'll Have Another to keep the Triple Crown hopes alive but now that's shifted to Creative Cause with Rosario racing in honor of his deceased brother.
