The Preakness ran on Saturday, may have seen the best thing that could have happened to horse racing after the Kentucky Derby debacle two weeks ago. A jockey-less horse became an instant celebrity on social media. Bodexpress will probably be remembered far longer by those watching the race than the eventually winner War of Will. Jockey-less horses happen more often than you would think though. Here are 6 times a horse without a jockey crossed the line in 'first.' Although technically disqualified, it's always fun to watch a free spirit push for victory on its own accord. It's much like trading. You have to be motivated to win with no one riding your ass to perform.
