Derby Champ Smarty Jones Wins Preakness

Smarty Jones blazed into the lead turning for home and won the Preakness by a record 11 1/2 lengths on Saturday, setting the stage for a dramatic Triple Crown try at the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.

The undefeated colt has a chance to become just the 12th Triple Crown champion and the first to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont since Affirmed in 1978.
