Updated: Monday, May 20 2013, 10:33 AM EDT
The winner of the 138th Preakness is Oxbow, fan favorite Orb came in 4th place.
Preakness was Oxbow's 11th career start, and the sixth start this year.
Oxbow was ridden by jockey Gary Stevens, and owned by Calumet Farm. Stevens is a 50-year-old grandfather who ended his retirement in January to ride in his 17th Preakness, and is the oldest jockey ever to win the Preakness. Calumet Farm is owned by Brad Kelley, a Tennessee native.
Oxbow's trainer is Hall-of-Famer, D. Wayne Lukas. No trainer has started more horses in Preakness since 1909 than Lukas. This years Preakness was Lukas' sixth Preakness victory, and his 15th Triple Crown victory -- which is the most in horse racing history.
"I get paid to spoil dreams," Lukas said in an interview with NBC moments after the victory.
In the Preakness, Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens took control at the outset and never relinquished the advantage.
Oxbow covered the 1 3/16th miles in 1:57.54. He went off as a 15-1 underdog and paid $32.80, $12 and $8.80.
