On Saturday, May 18, 2019, just two weeks after being at the center of one of the biggest controversies in racing history, Gary Barber’s War of Will found vengeance with a furious rally up the rail to win Saturday’s $1.65 million Preakness Stakes (G1) at Pimlico Race Course. No matter if you’re looking for 2019 Preakness Stakes contenders, entries, odds, results and payouts, news, past performances, picks and tips, or handicapping advice, you will have the most updated information here.


Race Recap/Replay

Breaking from the rail under Tyler Gaffalione just as he did in the Kentucky Derby, War of Will closely stalked the early pace, this time set by Warrior’s Charge. Patiently handled as the field rounded the far turn, War of Will surged through the suddenly wide-open hole staring him in the face. Striding powerfully past Warrior’s Charge, War of Will sped away unchallenged, unhindered by any lugging foes, giving trainer Mark Casse his first career victory in a Triple Crown event.

War of Will’s win was his third of the year following dominating performances in the LeComte Stakes (G3) and the Risen Star Stakes (G2) and improved his record to 10-4-1-1. The 3-year-old son of War Front became the second offspring of the turf super-sire to win a Grade 1 event on dirt following Omaha Beach’s victory in the Arkansas Derby. With the winner’s share of $990,000, War of Will has now earned $1,491,569 in his career.
