Preakness Stakes 2016: The Exaggerator Eclipse

Exaggerator upsets Nyquist during the 141st Preakness Stakes at Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course on May 20. The 3-year-old commanded the racetrack with a 3.5-length triumph to take the $1.5 million purse of the middle Triple Crown jewel. Two weeks ago, Exaggerator finished second to Nyquist at Churchill Downs’ Kentucky Derby. The two face off again at the 148th Belmont Stakes, which takes place June 11 at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.
