to June 10th, 1978. In what had been an incredibly thrilling rivalry between two all time greats -- Affirmed and Alydar -- the pair finished 1/2 in all three triple crown races, all three won by Affirmed, and the combined winning margin was two lengths. One of the greatest rivalries in the history of American Thoroughbred Racing; the great pair saved their greatest Triple Crown battle for last. To call it, and wind up my "Looking Back: Triple Crown" series (I'll have more, and will do one on Chrome if he wins :D), I'll give it to the great Chic Anderson :) ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apBIGFWMFr0 ...
to June 9th, 1973. A big red chestnut from Virginia snaps a 25 year Triple Crown drought in 1973. It had not been done since 1948 when the great Citation swept it. Secretariat went out to the lead, surprisingly, with a blistering pace, battling his greatest rival, Sham. After going 23 and change, 46 1/5, 1:09 4/5, 1:34 1/5 prior to finishing the 12f race in 2:24 flat. This broke the record by 2 3/5 seconds, which is unheard of, as he galloped and opened up into a 31 length victory. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfCMtaNiMDM.

to June 11th, 1977. A speedy little colt by the name of Seattle Slew wins the American Racing Triple Crown -- just four years after Secretariat (on page). Bought for just $17,500, Seattle Slew quickly became something special, as he finished the Triple Crown a perfect 9 for 9, following a four length victory in the Belmont, and stamping himself as a top 10 horse to ever live. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8783PipiJbo ...

  • rafirox · Great story, inspiring, I agree. Let's just hope the (somewhat) similar story of California Chrome produces the same story book ending. :) · 235 days ago
  • Mary Z. · Imagine racing a whole year after winning the Triple Crown, and beating another TC winner. Great stud career. Lived a long life. Died on the day war Emblem won the Kentucky Derby, · 235 days ago
