2013 Triple Crown Trail

I'll Have Another horse racing Kentucky Derby

I'll Have Another wins the 2012 Kentucky Derby

© Cindy Pierson Dulay
Updated January 31, 2013

January 1st marks the birthday for all Thoroughbreds and the new three-year-olds will start their campaigns for the Kentucky Derby and the Triple Crown. The Gulfstream Park Derby in Florida, run on New Year's Day, is the first and marks the beginning of a schedule of preps restricted to 3-year-olds that will run every weekend until the Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May. It has been 35 years since Affirmed won the last Triple Crown, and while I'll Have Another looked like he could do it last year, ultimately he never got the chance when he was scratched from the Belmont Stakes. Will someone FINALLY take the big prize this year?

Every week I will post the results and links to articles about each race, so check back regularly. Races marked with an asterisk * are points-scoring races under the new Road to the Kentucky Derby, where points determine who gets into the Derby field.
