Since 1978 11 horses have won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness and attempted to win the triple crown. Not one has succeeded. This is the longest streak since a 35-year stretch between Citation in 1948 and Secretariat in 1973. Seven horses won the Triple Crown between Gallant Fox becoming the second horse to capture the crown jewels of horse racing and Citation.
With his withdrawal from the Belmont, I’ll Have Another is the 12th horse since Affirmed’s 1978 Triple Crown to win the first two legs of horse racing’s crown jewel and fail to win the Belmont. Each of the 12 horses had its own unique journey in their three-year-old seasons. Here is a look at each with all three of their races.
