California Chrome wins the Preakness and now has a chance to become the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.  The winning time was 1:54:84.

The colt from California was the overwhelming favorite to win and now all racing eyes will turn to the Belmont June 7th.

Since Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978, 11 horses have won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness only to lose the Belmont Stakes.

139th Preakness Stakes
