    What is the Triple Crown?

    Have you heard of the Kentucky Derby? The King of all Thoroughbred Races? The Triple Crown is a prestigeous award given to a three-year-old Thoroughbred who not only wins the Kentucky Derby, but goes on to win a triplet of prestigeous races. The Kentucky Derby, The Preakness, and finally the Belmont Stakes. This is so difficult that only 13 horses have ever achieved such an honor, including the spectacular colt, Justify, this year!
