The second leg of the 2010 Triple Crown has wrapped up as the 135th running of the Preakness Stakes is officially over. It was Lookin at Lucky who claimed victory at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday.
Lookin at Lucky opened at 4/1, but his odds improved throughout the week, especially after he claimed the No. 7 post position on Wednesday. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, Lookin at Lucky dropped to 3/1 and then went to 2/1 right before post time, which was the same odds as favorite Super Saver.
Perhaps what's most remarkable about Lookin at Lucky's victory is that trainer Bob Baffert switched jockeys just two weeks after the Kentucky Derby. Despite having elite jockey Garrett Gomez continue to ride Lookin at Lucky, Baffert switched to Martin Garcia because he felt Gomez and Lucky weren't meshing. The move obviously paid off in the end.
The official payouts for Lookin at Lucky were $6.80 for win, $4.60 for place and $3.80 for show. First Dude, who was a 20/1 long shot coming into the race, finished second and had a payout of $16.60 for place and $9.20 for show. Jackson Bend, who opened at 14/1 to win and then moved to 11/1 after the post positions were drawn on Wednesday, finished third and had a payout of $6.60 for show.
Super Saver, who one the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago and who was ridden by elite jockey Calvin Borel, struggled mightily on Saturday. Despite the chance to win the second leg of the Triple Crown, it just wasn't meant to be for Super Saver as the horse appeared tired after racing just two weeks ago. (Of course, Lookin at Lucky also raced two weeks ago and claimed victory.)
Long shot Yawanna Twist (25/1) finished fourth, while Dublin (10/1) got off to an awful start out of the post (something his trainer was concerned about), but rallied to finish fifth.
