2006 Triple Crown Trail

Giacomo

Giacomo winning the 2005 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs

Updated April 24, 2006

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 Tropical Park Derby, run on New Year's Day, is the first Derby of the year and the beginning of a schedule of preps that will run every weekend until the Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May. It has been 28 years since Affirmed won the last Triple Crown, 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.
