The Kentucky Derby is also the first event of the "Triple Crown", three classic horse racing contests taking place in the Spring. The Derby, The Preakness Stakes, and The Belmont Stakes comprise the complete event. If one horse wins all three, it's deemed the "Triple Crown Winner". Only a handful of horses have ever won the Triple Crown, the most recent being "Affirmed" in 1978.
The favorite all-time winner of the Kentucky Derby and subsequent Triple Crown honors was Secretariat, a horse from the 1970's who stunned crowds with his complete and utter domination of the field. Secretariat would often win races by multiple lengths, embarassing opponents and hoofing away at lightning speed to victory. After Secretariat's death, an autopsy revealed part of this horse's amazing secret: his heart was physically larger than the average horse. A larger heart alone, however, is not always enough to win the Triple Crown: it takes good training, a solid jockey, and intelligence. Secretariat put all 3 together.
So, when the horses are off for this year's Kentucky Derby, remember you're taking part in one of America's time honored horse racing events, that could spawn a new Triple Crown winner.
