A Triple Crown is the act of winning or completing the three most important, difficult, or prestigious events, feats, or prizes in a given field. Originating in England in the mid-19th century in the sport of horse racing, it has spread to other competitive endeavors.
American Pharoah lost his first start before breaking his maiden in a Grade 1 race and winning eight consecutive races. Like six of the last seven Triple Crown winners, the colt had been named 2-year-old champion in 2014. He wrapped up his career with a win in the Breeders' Cup Classic against older horses and was later named Horse of the Year. Play texas holdem online with friends.
