The Triple Crown

The Triple Crown of thoroughbred racing includes: The Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes. The Triple Crown is considered the most elusive feat in the sport, and has only been achieved 11 times -- with the last completed in 1978. Will this be the year of the Triple Crown?

The excitement kicks off the first Saturday in May with the Kentucky Derby. Broadcasts are led by NBC Sports Radio network talent, covering all of the up-to-the-minute race information and the live call of each race. The post-show analysis includes interviews with the winning jockey, trainer, and owner.
