Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing

The Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, often shortened to Triple Crown, is a series of horse races for Thoroughbreds, often restricted to three-year-olds. Winning all three of these Thoroughbred horse races is considered the greatest accomplishment in Thoroughbred racing. The term originated in mid-19th-century England and nations where Thoroughbred racing is popular each have their own Triple Crown series.

English Triple CrownsEdit

In England, where the term Triple Crown originated with West Australian's three wins in 1853, it is made up of:

  1. The 2,000 Guineas Stakes, run over 1m (1,609 metres) at Newmarket Racecourse in Newmarket, Suffolk
  2. The Derby, run over 1m 4f and 10y (2,423 metres) at Epsom Downs Racecourse in Epsom, Surrey
  3. The St Leger Stakes, run over 1m 6f and 132y (2,937 metres) at Town Moor in Doncaster, Yorkshire

Since the 2,000 Guineas was first run in 1809, fifteen horses (including three winners of substitute races at Newmarket during the First World War) have won the English Triple Crown. The most recent – and only winner since World War II – was Nijinsky, in 1970. For many years, it was considered unlikely that any horse would ever win the English Triple Crown again. In the winter of 2006/2007, however, trainer Jim Bolger was training his unbeaten colt Teofilo for the Triple Crown[1] and bookmaker William Hill plc was offering odds of only 12/1 against Teofilo winning the 2007 Triple Crown. The horse was withdrawn from the 2000 Guineas two days before the race after suffering a setback and never raced again.

Since Nijinsky, only Nashwan (1989), Sea the Stars (2009), and Camelot (2012) have won both the Guineas and the Derby. Between Reference Point in 1987 and Camelot in 2012, no Derby winner (not even the potential Triple Crown winners Nashwan and Sea the Stars) even entered the St. Leger. This reluctance to compete in the St. Leger is said to be because of the impact it would have on a horse's stud value in a market where speed is preferred to stamina.

†Wartime winners Pommern, Gay Crusader and Gainsborough are not counted, according to many judges, as the three races were all held at Newmarket and racing itself was too disrupted. By this reckoning, there were only 12 triple crown winners, and only three in the 20th century.

Failed Triple Crown attemptsEdit

The following horses won the 2000 Guineas and Derby but were beaten in the St Leger:

Additionally:

  • Blue Peter won 2000 Guineas and Derby in 1939 but St Leger was cancelled due to World War II.

Fillies Triple CrownEdit

There is also a Fillies Triple Crown for a filly winning the 1,000 Guineas Stakes, Epsom Oaks and St. Leger Stakes.[2] In the past, this was not considered a true Triple Crown as the best fillies would often run in the Derby and Two Thousand Guineas. As this is no longer the case, the Fillies' Triple Crown would now be considered as comparable as the original. Winners of the Fillies Triple Crown are:

Triple TiaraEdit

There have been several different versions of the Triple Tiara (sometimes known as the Filly Triple Crown) in the United States. One of them was a national version that consisted of undercard events on the same weekends as the associated Triple Crown races:

  1. Kentucky Oaks, run over 1+18 miles (1811 m) on a dirt track, at Churchill Downs;
  2. Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, run over 1+18 miles (1811 m) (previously 1+116 mi or 1.7 km) on a dirt track, at Pimlico Race Course;
  3. Acorn Stakes, run over 1 mile (1609 m) (previously 1+12 mi or 2.4 km) on a dirt track, at Belmont Park;

Only one filly won this version of the Triple Tiara, Davona Dale in 1979. Few have even tried as the short time between the Kentucky Oaks and Black-Eyed Susan is generally considered too short for fillies.

The most commonly accepted version of the Triple Tiara is the American Triple Tiara of Thoroughbred Racing which uses three races from New York. From 1957 to 2002, and 2007 to 2009, these three races were the Acorn Stakes, the Mother Goose Stakes, and the Coaching Club American Oaks. Eight fillies won this version of the New York Triple Tiara:

In 2010, the NYRA changed the configuration of the Triple Tiara to include the Alabama Stakes instead of the Mother Goose. As of 2022, no filly has won the reconfigured Triple Tiara.

New York Handicap TripleEdit

The New York Handicap Triple is a series of three handicap races run in New York.[4] Although historically notable, the series is now essentially defunct, as two of the races are run on the same day, making a sweep impossible. In addition, only the Metropolitan Handicap maintains a top-level designation and continues to be run as a handicap. The series consists of:

  1. Metropolitan Handicap, run over 1 mile (1609 m) on a dirt track, at Belmont Park;
  2. Brooklyn Handicap (now run as the Brooklyn Invitational Stakes), run over 1+14 miles (2012 m) (now 1+12 miles (2414 m)) on a dirt track, at Belmont Park;
  3. Suburban Handicap (now run as the Suburban Stakes), run over 1+14 miles (2012 m) on a dirt track, at Belmont Park;

The triple has been won by four horses:

Turf Triple SeriesEdit

In 2019, the New York Racing Association established two series of races for three-year-olds on the turf: the Turf Trinity and the Turf Tiara.[9][10] As of 2021, neither has been swept by a singular horse.

  1. Belmont Derby, run over 1+14 miles (2012 m) on a turf track at Belmont Park
