Oxbow Wins Preakness, Orb Finishes 4th

Oxbow has won the Preakness Stakes, meaning that there will be no Triple Crown winner this year.

Oxbow, ridden by Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens and trained by veteran trainer Wayne Lukas, Saturday led the Preakness in Baltimore, Maryland from start to finish. Oxbow was the surprise winner with 15-to-1 odds.

Itsmyluckyday finished second and Mylute was third.

Kentucky Derby champion and favorite Orb finished fourth in the Preakness -- the second jewel in horse racing's Triple Crown series.

Orb ran most of the race along the rail or bunched in the pack in the nine-horse field and never had room to break away.

The third and final race of the series, the Belmont Stakes, will be held in New York in three weeks.

No horse has won the Triple Crown since 1978.
