Swiss Skydiver wins 2020 Preakness Stakes

Three Triple Crown races and three different winners. Swiss Skydiver won the Preakness by a nose.

Preakness finish

Swiss Skydiver by a nose over Kentucky Derby winner Authentic wins the Preakness Stakes to close out the 2020 Triple Crown season. Trainer Ken McPeek wins his first Preakness Stakes with a filly, the first lady to claim the Run for the Black-Eyed Susans since Rachel Alexandra in 2009, and only the sixth-ever.

The 11-1 shot is just the 12th filly to ever win a Triple Crown race, and paid 25.40 for the win, making all the exotics she hit pay quite handsomely.

The opening quarter-mile was a very slow 24.2, and they crossed the line in 1:53.1.
