WOO-HOO!!!!!!!!! HE WON THE TRIPLE CROWN!!!!! AWESOMENESS!!!!!!!
YOU JSUT GOT JUSTIFIED YO
Yeah...... It happened long time ago. She was one of the about 2 or 3 mares that every really entered horse racing or at least entered the Kentucky derby.....
Oh wow . . . I hadn't heard that
XDD Yup that sums it up. I only went to the Rolex (Now Landrover ) And watched the Belmont Stakes. I know it is REALLY risky. Did you hear abotu that mare in 2008 in the Kentucky Derby? She slowed down and then her two front leg ankles broke.... It was extremly sad for me but I didn't see it because I was only 1.
This is what happened on all of the three Triple Crown races.
Well, I can fill you in. There was this two-hour-long buildup, in which a bunch of men in suits were talking about horses and they showed the new trophy but mentioned that it might not be won. Then the men started shouting about how the horses were changing positions when the race started. A bright chestnut with a wide blaze named Justify ran around a big dirt ring and won the race. People clapped.
Yeah, I didn't watch any of the races
Don't worry, I didn't see the Kentucky Derby this year either. The only race in the Triple Crown that I saw was the Belmont Stakes, in which Justify won, and therefore became the thirteenth horse in history to win the Triple Crown.
Well, this is an incredibly hard profession, and it isn't too uncommon for jockeys to fall from the saddle because of the speeds their horses are traveling. Of these jockeys that fall, some can have injuries that can prevent them from riding and even walking ever again. So there is plenty of determination, but there are also risks. Not to mention that sometimes other horses will come in from behind and steal the lead, etc., etc. So just about anything can happen in a horse race.
Kentucky Derby: 1.25 miles (one and a quarter)
Preakness Stakes: 1.1875 miles (one and three sixteenths)
Belmont Stakes: 1.5 miles (one and a half)
Oh well I knew all that but that is crazy that only 13 have now won the Triple Crown in the past one-hundred years. I mean I know that it is really hard to do, but people have got to have more determination than that.
No, no. The three races that make up the Triple Crown are the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes. Each year, these races are run in this order. The Kentucky Derby winner then can choose to move on to the Preakness. If the same horse wins the Preakness, then its owners try for the Belmont Stakes. The Belmont stakes is the hardest and longest, 1 and a half miles around the track. If the same horse that won the other two wins the Belmont Stakes, they have won the "Triple Crown" which is the combination of these three races. Only twelve horses have done it in the past one hundred years. This year, Justify did it to become the thirteenth horse to do it in Triple Crown history.
WAIT, HE HAS WON IT 13 TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAAAAAATTTT?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!??!?!?!??!?!
Maybe that was just me . . . the announcers kept saying "wire to wire" meaning he was in the lead the whole time, but to me it looked like Hofberg (another horse, finishing in third place) was in the lead by a nose around the first turn. Not that it matters, because JUSTIFY WON!!!!!!! 13TH TRIPLE CROWN EVER!!!!!!
