Get Your Preak On! Scenes From The 135th Preakness Stakes


05/15/10 Another great Preakness Day. Turns out there will be no Triple Crown winner this year as the heavily favored Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver folded up like a lawn chair when it was time for him to hit the gas. He finished 8th.  The victory went to Lookin At Lucky ridden by 25 year old jockey Martin Garcia, who has never been in a Triple Crown race before.
