I'll Have Another won the 137th Preakness Stakes on Saturday, taking the second jewel of the Triple Crown after its earlier win in the Kentucky Derby. It will attempt to be the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed did it in 1978 when it races in the Belmont Stakes on June 9.
KC's View:
There's a great business metaphor here, I think. I know next to nothing about horse racing, but I gather than I'll Have Another have never been favored to win any of its races. And yet, in the most important ones, it wins. If I'll Have Another can have just one more, it'll enter racing history. Which is kind of cool.
