    Justify Wins the 2018 Preakness Stakes

    Posted on May 22, 2018

    The second of three races that comprise the Triple Crown ended in another win for Justify this weekend. Conditions at Pimlico Race Course were strikingly similar to those at Churchill Downs earlier this month, with rains leading up to the race, a muddy track, and the addition of heavy fog that made the 9.5 furlongs that much more exciting.

    Competition was fierce, with Good Magic and Justify running neck and neck for most of the race. In the end, Good Magic ended up in fourth after being chased down by Bravazo and Tenfold in the final stretch. Below are the official results for the 143rd Preakness Stakes:
