2013 Triple Crown Trail


I'll Have Another, winner of the 2012 Kentucky Derby

Updated: 4/29/2013

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 elusive Triple Crown. The first Derby of the year, the Gulfstream Park Derby, was run on New Year's Day and there will be a 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 in 2008 and I'll Have Another in 2012, the last Triple Crown winner is still Affirmed in 1978. Will a talented sophomore step up this year and finally end the 35 year drought?

You may also want to check the Road to the Kentucky Derby Leaderboard since the points earned by contenders in designated prep races are what will determine who gets in the Kentucky Derby at entry time this year. Races marked with an asterisk * below are points-scoring prep races.
