2009 Triple Crown Trail

Big Brown, winner of the 2008 Kentucky Derby

Updated: 05/18/2009

It's that time of year again when the newly turned three-year-old Thoroughbreds start their campaign for the Kentucky Derby and dreams of the illusive Triple Crown. The first derby of the year is usually the Tropical Park Derby on January 1st at Calder, but unfortunately it was cancelled for 2009. In any case, there will be a Triple Crown prep race somewhere every weekend from now on until the Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May.

Keep checking back with this list as I will post results and links to recaps or stakes histories for all the races weekly. Although we have had several near misses recently, including Big Brown last year, the last Triple Crown winner was Affirmed in 1978. Will a talented sophomore step up this year and finally end the 31 year drought?
