2009 Triple Crown Recap

Date: 06/15/00

This year was surprising for several reasons, starting off with Mine That Bird winning the Kentucky Derby as a huge longshot. While he did well the rest of the year, including second in the Preakness and third in the Belmont, he hasn't won a race since. The surprises continued when runaway Kentucky Oaks winner Rachel Alexandra was sent to the Preakness where she beat the boys easily. She continued skipped the Belmont but never lost again, closing out the season with a win in the Woodward at Saratoga against older males. The Belmont was a bit of a letdown since she didn't run, but a new star emerged as Summer Bird won easily and went on to win several more times including the Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont. So while each race was won by a different horse, it was still a very exciting season and several very nice runners came out of it.

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.
