Preakness live race updates, results, highlights from 2021 Triple Crown race

Two weeks after the Kentucky Derby, the return leg of the Triple Crown Race is here.

The 2021 Preakness Stakes are even more intriguing this year due to the controversy surrounding Medina Spirit, the winner of the Derby. A test result after the race showed that the horse had 21 picograms of betamethasone, 11 more than the legal racing limit. Trainer Bob Baffert insists that the positive test was not drug-related and describes Churchill Down’s decision to void the horse’s victory – until a second positive test – as an “injustice”.

Then there is the controversy: Mandaloun, the runner-up in the derby, will retrospectively be considered the winner at Churchill Downs if a second test confirms the first. But Mandaloun won’t run on the Pimlico circuit. So we could have a scenario where Medina Spirit wins the race without being in the official race for the Triple Crown.

All the more reason to watch the spectacle on Saturday. Follow us as Sporting News provides live updates during the 2021 Preakness Stakes.
