Thoroughbred racehorse Wicked Strong, at the Kentucky DerbyBy: Bill Brine
The Kentucky Derby kicks off the first leg of the Triple Crown, in style. This entry provides all the info you need to watch the entire Kentucky Derby event on TV or online, including replay links to all the races and popular events surrounding the spectacle that is The Derby.
The Belmont Stakes caps off the Triple Crown racing season, aptly dubbed 'The Third Jewel of the Triple Crown'. It's also the longest leg of all three races, stretching at 1.5 miles long. Makes for a worthy finale.
Ah, the Preakness Stakes. My favorite of all horse racing events. The Pimlico track is the shortest, the fastest, and we're all carrying over excitement from the Derby that maybe, just maybe, the winner can cover the board and get the Triple Crown.To watch all the action on TV or online, use this guide.
Roughly half of all thoroughbreds that have won the Kentucky Derby in the 21st century went on to win the Preakness Stakes. Most of the time with ease. And yet these same horses routinely fail at winning the last leg of the triple crown at Belmont.
It's called the "Test of Champions" for a horse to win all three legs of the Triple Crown. A test so hard in fact that it's only happened really three times under the current formatting (or lack thereof) of the 3-leg event: the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. That was in 1948, 1977, and then 1978. Hasn't happened since.
