Curlin Wins Preakness

BALTIMORE (AP) - Curlin nipped Kentucky Derby winner Street
Sense on the final stride and won the Preakness Stakes in a
riveting finish today, ending a chance of a Triple Crown for this
racing season.
Street Sense seemed to have the race won after another of his
patented rallies, taking the lead in the stretch. But the colt was
unable to hold off Curlin's late charge thanks to an expert ride by
Robby Albarado.
Three races earlier, Albarado was thrown from his mount but
walked away unhurt and came back for the ride of his life.
