|ALL THE RUNNERS|
|OF THE AMERICAN TRIPLE CROWN|
|by Kathleen Irwin and Joy Reeves|
FINALLY! Every single horse who has gone to post in the three legs of the American Triple Crown (Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes), since their inception in 1867. Not just the winners! Fully indexed.
Phase II is still incomplete, and we appreciate your patience as we continue to work on this massive project. Although the data is incomplete, what is there is considered to be accurate. If you have a particular interest in a horse that is not yet completed, feel free to ask us to give it a higher priority. We will do our best to accomodate.
Phase I - DONE - Each horse's finish position, pedigree, and basic data about the race.
Phase II - (under construction) - each horse's major victories, and most important offspring. For the sake of continuity, any races mentioned herein do not reflect a Graded (or Group) value. The majority of these races mentioned were from a time prior to the development of the Graded Stakes system, and Graded value of any specific race can change from one year to the next. In this database's role as historical recorder, we felt the name of the race won was the most important piece of information to include.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy and can make use of this pedigree data. Data sourced mainly from the AMERICAN STUD BOOK and sports pages of the New York Times. Additional data courtesy Bloodstock Research Information Services. Special thanks to Cathy Schenck, librarian for Keeneland, whose assistance was especially appreciated.
