The Triple Crown

The Triple Crown is a combination of three races: The Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and the Belmont Stakes. These are the biggest races of the year for Thoroughbred Racing. There have only been 11 Triple Crown Winners. The last winner was Affirmed in 1978. It has been 34 years since Affirmed won the Triple Crown. This year another horse will have the chance to win the Triple Crown and end the 34 year drought, his name is I’ll Have Another. He won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. Now he has a shot at the Belmont Stakes, but there have been 21 other horses that have won the first two races but failed to win the Belmont and the Triple Crown. The Belmont Stakes will be on June 9 at 3 PM EST. Well good luck to I’ll Have Another on the next race and on his quest to become the Triple Crown winner.
