Triple Crown 2012: I'll Have Another A Belmont Win Away From Rare Feat

I'll Have Another and 25-year-old jockey Mario Gutierrez have now captured the first two legs of horse racing's Triple Crown, edging out Bodemeister in the Preakness Stakes on Saturday just as the horse had done at the Kentucky Derby weeks earlier. I'll Have Another is now one win away from capturing the first Triple Crown in 34 years.

Affirmed was the last horse to win the Triple Crown, in 1978. Since then, 11 horses have won both the Derby and Preakness but fallen short in the Belmont, the most recent being Big Brown in 2008.

The 2012 Belmont Stakes will take place in three weeks, on June 9th at Belmont Park in New York.

The 11 horses that have captured the Triple Crown:

1919 Sir Barton
1930 Gallant Fox
1935 Omaha
1937 War Admiral
1941 Whirlaway
1943 Count Fleet
1946 Assault
1948 Citation
1973 Secretariat
1977 Seattle Slew
1978 Affirmed

2012 Preakness Stakes: Will A New Shooter Take The Title?

The Kentucky Derby field was enormous, but not every horse that ran that race will continue their trek through the Triple Crown. The Preakness will feature a few horses that we did not see in the Derby, and the term reserved for those pokes is "new-shooters." The "new-shooters" that will be entering the Preakness are Brimstone Island, Cozzetti, Guyana Star Dweej, Hierro, Paynter, Pretension, Teeth of the Dog, Tiger Walk and Zetterholm. You can read a little bit more about each of these horses at SB Nation, but here is some more info on the horse that seems to have the best chance, Teeth of the Dog.

Like Paynter, this colt is lightly raced and still developing, which is potentially a huge combination in any race. He hasn't raced since April 7th and could be ready to fire a big race right off the short layoff.

The last new-shooter to win the Preakness was Bernadini in 2006, so it isn't a very frequent occurrence but it does happen sometimes.
