War Of Will Wins Preakness Stakes
War of Will has won the 144th Preakness Stakes at Maryland's Pimlico Race Course. After being interfered with in the first leg of the Triple Crown at the Kentucky Derby, War of Will came roaring back to take the middle leg. Everfast placed second while Owendale finished third. Race favorite Improbable finished sixth. Bodexpress bucked jockey John Velázquez off as the race began and ran the race by itself. Kentucky Derby winner Country House did not race because he was ill. During Friday's Black Eyed Susan Day race, Congrats Gal collapsed after crossing the finish line, but there's no information on the horse's cause of death. The Maryland Jockey Club says veterinarians attended to the horse immediately and a full necropsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
