Most sports fan should be watching this weekend, as I'll Have Another could make history this Saturday at the 144th Belmont Stakes. Horse racing hasn't seen a Triple Crown Winner since Affirmed (a beautiful chestnut colt) won it 34 years ago in 1978. 

The Triple Crown (given to any horse that wins at the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and the Belmont Stakes) is pretty much expected to go to I'll Have Another, given that the horse is the odds-on favorite to win it all. I'll Have Another has four first place finishes in four starts this year. 

But there could be spoilers among the mix of competitors, jockeys who want to tear that Triple Crown away from the powerhouse horse. 

Just like in all sports, anything could happen this weekend. But it truly would be a shame if I'll Have Another isn't able to complete the sweep. 

Here are some things that will be useful to know in order to pick a winner this weekend.
