War of Will

2019 Winner

In front of a roaring crowd of 131,256, War of Will and jockey Tyler Gaffalione made their move around the final turn, sliding to the middle of the track and charging forward to hold off longshot Everfast and challenger Owendale to claim victory at the 144th running of the Preakness Stakes. Starting from the No. 1 post and successfully navigating the rail, War of Will captured all of the glory among the 13-horse field, the largest at the Preakness since 2011.

Owned by Gary Barber, War of Will’s victory marks the first Triple Crown series victory for trainer Mark Casse.
