In the the 137th running of the Preakness Stakes it was I'll Have Another who came from behind to win the second leg of the Triple Crown and overtook Bodemeister down the stretch to literally win by a nose, well actually by a neck.

Bodemeister had approximately a one-horse length lead over I'll Have Another and just over two-horse lengths over the rest of the field. The two horses pulled away from the field to win by multiple lengths.
