No shot at Triple Crown as favored colt is scratched from Belmont Stakes

The field for Saturday's race is wide open with favored colt, I'll Have Another, scratched from the Belmont Stakes.

But no horse that sprints to the lead at Belmont Park can get close to the history I'll Have Another would have made if he'd won.

In 34 years, no horse has swept the Triple Crown - the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.
Only 11 horses have won the Triple Crown. The last was Affirmed in 1978.

    @bobcat (in a hat)©, They've made progress on the one in New Mexico which is about 260 miles from me. Now my region of Arizona is under a watch because it is extremely windy, dry, and hot!!! I keep myself prepared in case of an evacuation, gassed up the car, plenty of water, and of course first priority is having the gatos carriers out. Thanks for asking.
