  • 2019 Preakness Stakes winner War Of Will

As Bodexpress broke from the starting gate, he tossed jockey Johnny Velazquez who was not injured in the fall or subsequent moments. He finished seventh after being moved up and trainer Mark Casse eventually was vocal in saying that War of Will did not get a fair shot in the Derby because of Maximum Security's actions.

The 144th running of the Preakness Stakes took place Saturday, May 18, 2019, and War of Will was declared the victor of the race. He even kept running after the race was over! War of Will, ridden by Tyler Gaffalione won.

Gaffalione, 24, notched the biggest win of his career. Fans actually cheered on the pony as it kept up with the field during the race despite not having a rider to guide him. "I've had horses that try to win".

War of Will, who went off at 6-1 odds, was the main victim in the controversial Kentucky Derby run two weeks earlier on a muddy track at Churchill Downs.

"When the doors opened, I was off right from the start and he kind of jumped sideways, and I had my feet out of the irons so I lost my balance and I went off".

But it was a sweet comeback for War of Will, who stewards ruled was hindered by Maximum Security in the Kentucky Derby as they turned for home.

That made Improbable, the fifth-place Derby finisher (credited with fourth), favourite for the Preakness, despite he had yet to win in three starts this year.

The 144th running of the Preakness was not without excitement and a scary incident however.

"He wasn't behaving well in the gate", Velazquez said. But it was Bodexpress that got all of the attention because the colt's jockey fell off right at the starting gate and the pony went on to complete the entire race without a rider! "But the Stronach Group is a private company, a private entity - and this is what they own so we really have to negotiate and work with them but I think that they know the Preakness belongs in Baltimore".

"I'm not even calling it redemption", Casse added.

The loose horse was far enough to the outside to avoid Gaffalione and War Of Will during the race for after breaking from the stall one, the same post he drew in the Kentucky Derby, the jockey sat coolly as the colt came nicely to hand while saving ground on the first turn.

Casse had plenty of words after the contentious situation at the Kentucky Derby that spurred a lawsuit from Maximum Security owners Gary West and a 15-day suspension handed down to jockey Luis Saez.

"I'm just very happy for Mark to get his first Classic win", Gaffalione said.
