No Triple Crown: Oxbow upsets Orb at Preakness

Advertisement

BALTIMORE — Right from the start, a horse trained by one not so over-the-hill Hall of Famer and ridden by another took control of the Preakness. The result: a huge upset and the end of any hopes for a Triple Crown attempt at the Belmont Stakes.

Thanks to Oxbow’s wire-to-wire win Saturday over Kentucky Derby winner Orb, trainer D. Wayne Lukas and jockey Gary Stevens have themselves another classic to add to their stellar resumes.

Stevens ended his retirement in January, and won his third Preakness to go along with three victories in the Derby and three in the Belmont.
