Oxbow, a 15-1 longshot ridden masterfully by 50-year-old Hall of Famer Gary Stevens, cruised to an easy, wire-to-wire victory in the $1 million Preakness Stakes on Saturday.

Itsmyluckyday, ridden by John Velazquez, finished second in the field of nine, while Rosie Napravnik guided Mylute to a third-place finish over a fast track at Pimlico Race Course.

Orb, the Kentucky Derby champion, tired badly and finished fourth, ensuring that a Triple Crown champion will have to wait at least another year.

The winning time for the mile-and-three-16th race was 1:57:54.
