Triple Crown Trail 2002

Monarchos, winner of the 2001 Kentucky Derby

Updated: 04/29/02

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 illusive Triple Crown. The first Derby of the year, the Tropical Park Derby, was on January 1st at Calder and there will be a prep race somewhere every weekend from now on until the Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May. Sadly, two very historic preps have fallen by the wayside this year due to Hialeah closing: The Everglades and The Flamingo.

Check back to this list as I will post results and links to recaps or stakes histories for all the races weekly. The last Triple Crown winner was Affirmed in 1978. Will a talented sophomore step up this year and end the 23 year drought? For the latest list to top Derby contenders, check here.
