Baltimore, MD (NNCNOW.com) --- After winning the Kentucky Derby, California Chrome kept his Triple Crown dreams alive after taking home the 139th Preakness Stakes on Saturday afternoon at Pimlico Track in Baltimore, Md.

Since Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978, no horse has been able to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont.

Since then, 12 horses have won the first two legs before failing to complete the feat at Belmont.
