Authentic (7-5), the Belmont Stakes winner, was the heavy favorite, but Swiss Skydiver (11-1) took the lead midway through the race and was able to hold on as the horses went neck-and-neck down the stretch at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Swiss Skydiver, the lone female horse in the field, became just the sixth filly to win the Preakness, which was first run in 1873.
A 1-2 favorite at racetime, the 7-year-old mare secured her 10th first-place finish in 40 lifetime runs, while Ortiz, her jockey, won for the second time in three races, with a second-place finish.
