Preakness Stakes Results: The winner is Big Brown

Preakness Stakes Results: The winner is Big Brown The 2008 Preakness Stakes is over and the winner of the race is the always-favorite Big Brown. The 3-year-old left the rest of the Preakness contenders in the dust, after he pulled away at the final turn. Macho Again and Icabad Crane finished second and third (unofficial results), respectively, bringing hefty payouts to the lucky bettors. With his victory at the Preakness Stakes, Big Brown proved he is now a true contender to the Triple Crown and only the Belmont Stakes are left ahead of this "freak". He was such a favorite before the race (1/5 odds), that most bookmakers offered odds on the Preakness Stakes without Big Brown, which tunred out to be a great deal for those who took it. The Preaknes Stakes results have Macho Again as the second finisher, which means that he is considered the winner, if betting on the odds without Big Brown. At the online bookmaker BodogSports the odds on Macho Again were 6/1.
