There are only a few Triple Crown winners in the history of horse racing, this year I'LL HAVE ANOTHER will take his shot to become among the short list of just eleven Triple Crown winners. The first year a Triple Crown winner earned the title was in 1919, the H. Guy Bedwell trained colt SIR BARTON, the Kentucky bred made his debut as a maiden in the 1919 Kentucky Derby and went on to win all three horse racing events that comprise the Triple Crown.
After five other Triple Crown winners earned the title, GALLANT FOX (1930), OMAHA (1935), WAR ADMIRAL (1937), WHIRLAWAY (1941), COUNT FLEET (1943), ASSAULT (1946) and CITATION (1948) a long drought ensued until the most legendary of horses became the next horse in the list of Triple Crown winners. It wasn't until 1978 that SECRATERIAT earned the next Triple Crown win in a fashion that has never been repeated, making SECRETARIAT one of the greatest of all time. SEATTLE SLEW (1977) and AFFIRMED (1978) wrap up the list of Triple Crown winners and could give way to the twelfth winner on June 9, 2012.
