The headlines won't just read 'War of Will' won the Preakness Stakes after the 144th running. Reason being, we all saw something that's never happened before and it demands your attention - the maiden horse Bodexpress ran the entire race, without a jockey. And it was awesome.

The horse bucked off his jockey from the very start of race as the gates opened. Then Bodexpress immediately darted to the outside and galloped with all the other jockey-led horses, for the entire race. He was determined to do it solo, it seems.

If there was ever a losing horse for a Triple Crown leg that won the admiration and respect of the entire internet at large, that mantle far and away goes to Bodexpress. Already hundreds, maybe thousands of memes are being feverishly uploaded to social media, celebrating him.

So let's all take a moment to pay our respects to the true MVP of this race, the true winner of the Preakness Stakes for 2019 - the horse no jockey can contain: Bodexpress.

If you've got the time, Twitter is all over this. #Bodexpress #Preakness

And then finally the reaction from the bucked jockey.

Maybe this was his way of protesting what happened yesterday at Pimlico. Keep strong and run on, Bodexpress.
