Swiss Skydiver won the 145th running of the Preakness Stakes in Baltimore, Maryland, on Saturday, according to the race organization's official Twitter.

The entire race took place without spectators due to the coronavirus pandemic. The three-year-old filly, the sole female horse on the field, was ridden by jockey Robby Albarado and is owned by Peter Callahan under trainer Kenneth McPeek.

Race favorite Authentic came in second place.

Typically, the middle jewel of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes was the last leg of the three-race series for the first time in history. The race was originally slated to take place on May 16.

Traditionally, the Preakness Stakes is held after the Kentucky Derby and before the Belmont Stakes, but those two races were postponed as well due to the pandemic.

The Belmont Stakes, usually the final race, was held first in June, with Tiz the Law coming in first place, Dr. Post in second, and Max Player in third.

The Kentucky Derby later took place in September. Authentic won the 146th running of The Derby, with favored Tiz the Law coming in second and Mr. Big News finishing third.

Another very windy day for northern California as an area of low pressure continues its southward trek over our state. Thankfully we'll have much quieter weather on Wednesday, with more rain and snow chances coming.
