Giacomo was a surprise longshot winner in the Kentucky Derby, winning with a late rally on the outside that caught everyone by surprise. He wasn't able to maintain his move in the rest of the Triple Crown, finishing 3rd in the Preakness and 7th in the Belmont. The star of the Triple Crown was Afleet Alex, who was third in the Derby but win both the Preakness and Belmont. He and his connections captured the hearts of racing fans with their support of Alex's Lemonade Stand Charity for Pediatric Cancer, raising over $3.5 million in 2005.
Here are all the pages of info and photos I put up for the three Triple Crown races. The results page has the order of finish and pay-offs as well as photos of the running. The rest are self explanatory and all include several photos. Take your time and look at them all to relive the experience of this year's spectacle.
