Only eleven horses have won the elusive Triple Crown. The grueling schedule of three races in 5 weeks at longer distances than most have run previously in their careers is probably the most difficult task any horse will face in his racing career. Smarty Jones became the lastest to fail when he finished second to Birdstone in the 2004 Belmont.

Affirmed in 1978 still remains the last Triple Crown winner, as we wait for the next colt to step up and join this exclusive group. Sadly, the last Triple Crown winner left alive, Seattle Slew, passed away on May 7, 2002.

So....it's been 30 years-IT'S TIME!

Was looking at Casino Drive (like the name), but he has a bum foot too
So now thinking Denis of Cork or Tale of Ekati

They're having NY celebration at Gulfstream Race Track (where Big Brown won Florida Derby) Pastrami, Hot Dogs, Cheesecake and $1 beer

I'm there!

Only 9 challengers and the best of those has a bruised hoof. When Secretariat won in 1973 there were only 6 horses running. Can't remember a smaller field since then. It seems merly a formality but of course anything can happen. The Cubs could win the...naaahhh won't happen. Big Brown will do what Big Red did in 1973.

Remember how close the Cubs were in 1973. The NL East, going into the season's final weekend, could have ended in a 5- (out of 6 teams) way tie with the Cubs among those five. But the Mets took the series from Chicag and went on to the World Series.

Back on topic, here's a quickie: Who was the jockey who rode Secretariat to the Triple Crown?

1948 Citation Eddie Arcaro

1973 Secretariat Ron Turcotte

1977 Seattle Slew Jean Cruguet

1978 Affirmed Steve Cauthen

No horse won the Triple Crown since Eddie Arcaro on Citation until RON TURCOTTE on Secretariat in 1973, flowed quickly by Seattle Slew in 1977 and Affirmed in 1978. Thus, only three horses have completed the sweep in 60 years.

Side light to the Big Brown debacle.

I have an "uncashed" $2.00 winning ticket from Secretariat's win at Belmont in 1973.
That win completed the Triple Crown. The track record was set that day [2:24]- and still stands.
Also, the racing program from Belmont that day- all in good condition.


My deceased father-in law attended that day and never cashed the ticket. He knew it was a special moment in thoroughbred history.

Don't know what the value may be now.

I was hoping he would win. His jockey did the right thing by pulling him up when he saw he wasn't going to place. Tough race, it was a very hot day for those beautiful animals. Nick Zito wins another, he's the lucky one (or talented one)!

That was a bit of a snooze. But they did say it was a very smart horse. It knew it didn't feel like running against all those fresh horses.

Poor horse.
