The Triple Crown

One of the most revered titles for any thoroughbred horse to have is the Triple Crown, which only 12 horses have won since it’s inception.  To acquire the title, the Preakness Stakes, Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes must be won,. This had not been done since 1978, making this an elusive title until American Pharoah won it this year. This a great achievement, and in the spirit of celebration here is an infographic from the online wagering site MyWinners.com, including some interesting facts about the title, its history and previous winners.
