BALTIMORE, Maryland -- Idaho jockey Gary Stevens and horse, Oxbow have won the 138th Preakness Stakes, ruining Orb's bid to capture the Triple Crown. This is Gary Stevens' third Preakness Stakes win, and ninth triple crown race win.

Oxbow led from start to finish. It was the sixth Preakness victory for Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas and 15th Triple Crown victory, most in horse racing history.

Orb finished fourth. The Kentucky Derby winner was a 3-5 favorite in Saturday's race, but he became another casualty of starting on the rail in the Preakness. Since 1950, only two horses have won the middle jewel of the Triple Crown from the No. 1 post position.

Orb's five-race winning streak ended on an overcast, windy day at Pimlico Race Course. The brown colt had not lost since Nov. 24.
