Triple Crown Winners


The Triple Crown, the rare feat of winning the top three races - the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes-- is the royal jewel of horse racing in America and is the pinnacle for three-year-olds (colts, fillies, geldings) and horse breeders.
In its 74-year-history, only 11 horses have won the Triple Crown, while 21 hopefuls finished only one win shy from the honor. The last horse to capture the crown was Affirmed in 1978.
Here's the complete list of all Triple Crown winners, and those who nearly embraced it but fell short.
