Swiss Skydiver won the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico as the superstar three-year-old filly took on Derby winner Authentic. The two went stride for stride down the back stretch but on the nod it was the 11/1 shot even though it was officially a photo finish. The runner-up at the Oaks charging down the inside got the nod as the two were way clear of the field and for the final quarter mile it was clearly a two-horse race.

Kenny McPeek and her connections should be praised for their gutsy decision to put her into the field. After taking on the Blue Grass in July, it showed that they truly believed in the horse and they even spoke about the Derby itself. They bypassed on that and went for the Oaks but disappointed when they fell agonisingly short that day. Still the Preakness wasn't ruled out and when push came to shove, they went for it and fortune favored the brave.

The win for Swiss Skydiver in the Preakness is the first for a filly since the wonderful Rachel Alexander in 2009. She went off at 11/1 and paid out $25.40 for the win. Authentic paid out $3.30 for second with outsider Jesus' Team rounding out the top three paying out $12.20 for the show.

We'll have more on this race and what it means for Swiss Skydiver going forward over the next few days but for now we rejoice in the quite outstanding ride from Robby Albarado who stood in at the last moment and piloted the horse to victory.
