For the second straight 2022 Triple Crown event, the favorite has not won the event. On Saturday, Early Voting won the 147th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico in Baltimore, Maryland.

Early Voting held off a late surge from the betting favorite Epicenter. Jockey José Ortíz rode Early Voting to the rail late in the race to get in front of Epicenter.

He guided Early Voting to a length by 1 1/4th win in extremely hot temperatures. Ortíz has won his first Preakness Stakes.

Early Voting’s trainer Chad Brown won his second Preakness Stakes. He was also the trainer for Cloud Computing when that horse won five years ago.

Early Voting had a 5-1 betting line at the time before the start. Epicenter — which was also the favorite for the Kentucky Derby — had a 6-5 line.

Creative Minister had a 10-1 line.
