Who won the Preakness: Preakness Stakes winner, results

 The 2009 Preakness Stakes winner is Rachel Alexandra, the filly with the best odds went the distance to victory in the 134th run of the Preakness. By winning the 2009 Preakness Stakes Rachel Alexandra became only the 5th filly to ever win a Preakness race and the first contender to win from the unfavorable #13 post position, but the odds-on favorite had little trouble fend off the Derby winner Mine That Bird, who finished second.

 Rachel Alexandra, the latest Preakness Stakes winner, took the lead early from Big Drama, who started from post position #1 and incidentally also threw his jockey right before the Preakness began. But by the first turn Rachel Alexandra was already in the lead, a lead she did not give up until the end. Mine That Bird, who launched an assault at the end, started the race cautiously from the very back, but managed to give the Preakness winner the run for her money. Mine That Bird, however, failed to beat the filly to the end, finishing second. Third finished Musket Man, who started from position #3. Keep in mind when getting ready for the Belmont Stakes that according to jockey Calvin Borel Rachel Alexandra did not run at 100% and even struggled a bit towards the end. According to Borel - there is no question who the winner of the Belmont will be.

 Here are the final 2009 Preakness Stakes results: Winner - Rachel Alexandra, Second - Mine That Bird and Third - Musket Man. Congratulations to all winners who did not go wrong this time around by betting the favorite horse to win the Preakness and those of you who bet the race at the online sportsbook Bodog Sports, winners or not, can now enjoy their free money at the Bodog Casino, part of the Preakness Stakes bonus we talk about earlier.
