War of Will crosses finish line first at Preakness
Maximum Security, the horse who crossed the finish line first in the 2019 Kentucky Derby but was later disqualified, did not run in the Preakness. His owners were denied an appeal in court last week when they attempted to challenge the controversial results of the Derby.
The Preakness Stakes is the second race of the famed Triple Crown, following the Kentucky Derby. The final race, the Belmont Stakes, will be held June 8 — three weeks after the Preakness.
