Triple Crown Betting

 

Triple Crown betting on Thoroughbred Horse Racing is made up of three races for three-year-olds. In order to win the Triple Crown, a horse must win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes.

The Triple Crown is one of the most elusive accomplishments in all of sports. Last won by Affirmed back in 1978 with jockey Steve Cauthen for trainer Laz Barrera.

The first crown jewel of the Triple Crown is the Kentucky Derby held at Churchill Downs in Louisville under the famous Twin Spires. The Kentucky Derby is run on a dirt track over 1 ¼ miles with a twenty horse field. Known as the Run for the Roses and the greatest two minutes in sports, the drink of choice for the Kentucky Derby is the Mint Julep.

Second stop on the Triple Crown trail is the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. The Preakness Stakes is the shortest of the Triple Crown races at 1 3/16th miles with the field limited to 14 horses. Known as the Run for the Black-Eyed Susans which are the state flower of Maryland and a blanket of Black-Eyed Susans draped over the winning horse. The drink of the Preakness Stakes is the Black Eyed Susan.

The final stop on the Triple Crown trail is the Belmont Stakes held at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. The Belmont Stakes is the longest leg of the Triple Crown at 1 ½ miles and is never more exciting than if a horse win the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes with the Triple Crown title on the line. The Belmont Stakes is known as the Test of Champions or the Run for the Carnations. The official drink for the Belmont Stakes is the Belmont Breeze.
