9News Sports Department has Triple Crown fever

KUSA - We are due for a Triple Crown winner, overdue. Not since Affirmed did it back in 1978 have we had horse racing's version of the hat trick.

The odds, 3-5, say the 36 year drought ends on Saturday, it's up to California Chrome.

A dozen horses during that stretch have failed to finish first down the stretch, they won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, but came up empty at Belmont.

The 9News sports department, like much of the sports world has caught Triple Crown fever. With the held of Arapahoe Park Track announcer Jonathan Horowitz, we present our version a the race.
