    War of Will may have won the 2019 Preakness, but really the most impressive horse on the track was Bodexpress. His jockey fell off at the very start of the race and yet the horse carried on running THE FULL RACE without him, and even kept running after the race had ended - twitter.com/BklynBckstretch/status/1129...

    Will post the official race video wants it surfaces. Or if you find it first, feel free and please share.

    Luckily the horse kept to the outside for the most part and didn't interfere with the other horses. But you would think with the lack of weight on his back, he should have won right? Seriously though, a shame for the horse and jockey because he had a good chance of being the first maiden horse to win at the Preakness since 1888.

    Forgot to mention, the horse bucks off the jockey right at the very beginning when they open the gates. And Bodexpress immediately runs to the outside. I wonder what made him do that? Any ideas?

    Now this is the kind of horse racing I'd like to see more of. Fill the stalls up with some semi-wild horses and see which jockey can stay on through the entire race.
