WASHINGTON (AFP) - War of Will won the th Preakness Stakes on Saturday, holding off a field that included a riderless horse to give trainer Mark Casse his first Triple Crown race triumph.   An honor reserved for U.S. presidents and high-ranking Army and Marine Corps officers, the riderless horse is led behing a caisson bearing the casket. The horse, wearing full regalia, carries an artillery sword and a pair of empty boots reversed in the stirrups.

      The single riderless horse that follows the caisson with boots reversed in the stirrups is called the "caparisoned horse" in reference to its ornamental coverings, which have a detailed protocol all to themselves. By tradition in military funeral honors, a caparisoned horse follows the casket of an Army or Marine Corps officer who was a colonel.   The title “High as the Horses’ Bridles” comes from the Book of Revelation in a verse that describes just how deep the sinners’ blood will flow in the streets.
