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.
