The sport of horse racing remains hungry for another Triple Crown winner. Affirmed in 1978 is the last to make the clean sweep of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont. In 2013, we saw 3 different horses win each leg of the Triple Crown and they are on track for a showdown in The Travers.

If Orb, Oxbow and Palace Malice all enter the starting gate on the second to last Saturday of the Saratoga meet, it will be the first time all three Triple Crown race winners have been in the Midsummer Derby since 1982. So, in more ways than one, we may see history at The Travers.
