The drought continues. For the 32nd straight year - tacking on yet
one more year in the ongoing record of Triple Crown futility - there
will be no sweep of racing's most coveted prize.
The only horse
who could have headed to the June 5 Belmont Stakes with a chance at the
Triple Crown was Super Saver, the Kentucky Derby winner who was a 19-10
favorite when a field of 12 3-year-olds went postward Saturday in the
135th Preakness at Pimlico. But it became painfully apparent as the
field neared the quarter pole that this was not to be his day.
