Seize the Grey, who entered at 9-1 odds, held off a late charge from Mystik Dan to win the 149th edition of the Preakness Stakes.

Catching Freedom rounded out the top three, just behind Mystik Dan, who can no longer claim the Triple Crown.

At age 88, D. Wayne Lukas is the oldest trainer in history to win a Triple Crown Race, according to Tyler Greever of WDRB News. Lukas has now captured the Preakness Stakes seven times.

"I think they're trying to get rid of me," Lukas said post-race, per Stephen Whyno of The Associated Press. "They probably want me to retire. I don't think that'll happen. It never gets old at this level, and I love the competition. I love to get in here with the rest of them."

Tuscan Gold and Just Steel placed fourth and fifth, respectively.
