"A horse never runs so fast...

…as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.” ~Ovid

Saturday is the 139th runnin' of the Kentucky Derby. AHM has been followin' horseracin’ for decades, and a few years ago we put together a series of posts about the eleven Triple Crown winners. Don’t have time to do that this year, but figured we’d go down memory lane and link to the previous posts.

Actually, with the Kentucky Oaks runnin’ tomorrow at Churchill Downs, I was gonna’ do a post about the Filly Triple Crown (that’s really called The Triple Tiara ‘cause, ya’ know, it’s for girls) but there isn’t a “national” Filly Triple whatever. They’re workin’ on it, so maybe one day.

Anyway, from first to last, here are the eleven horses who beat the odds to become immortal.

Gallant Fox/Omaha
