BALTIMORE (AP) — Rombauer has crossed the finish line first in the Preakness Stakes.

That denied trainer Bob Baffert’s Kentucky Derby-winning Medina Spirit of a Triple crown bid that would have carried a giant asterisk.

Medina Spirit finished third in the Preakness after going off as the 5-2 favorite. Midnight Bourbon was second.

Jockey Flavien Prat wins the Preakness two years after being elevated to the Derby winner when Maximum Security was disqualified. Trainer Michael McCarthy won the Preakness for the first time.
