1998 Preakness Stakes - Real Quiet

čas přidán 21. 05. 2012
As Kent Desormeaux crossed under the wire with Real Quiet following their victory in today's Preakness Stakes, he thrust a fist into the air and alternated flashing two fingers and then a lone index finger.
''Two down, one to go,'' Desormeaux said he was signaling.
''The Derby and Preakness are out of the way,'' he said. ''Now, we're messing with history.''
Not since Affirmed, in 1978, has any colt been able to win the Triple Crown, which consists of the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes. It has been accomplished only 11 times, by greats like Secretariat, Citation, Seattle Slew and War Admiral.

  • Does anyone else see how badly Halory Hunter was limping, and that he still had someone on him..? Morons!

  • I loved the Fish

  • I simply fell in love with this horse and bet him in the Derby and Preakness! Loved his finish in the SA Derby and felt he was peaking for the Derby!

  • And twenty years later Mr. Baffert has 2 triple crown champions and counting....arguably the greatest thoroughbred trainer ever.

  • 3.I MISSED A $40 DOLLAR WINNER BECAUSE I COULD NOT GET A BET IN SOMEONE ASKED ME IF I KNEW JOE DE FRANCIS I KNEW HIM ON SIGHT HE GAVE ME A ICE BALL AND SAID IF YOU SEE HIM THROW THIS AT HIM I REPLIED DONT TEMPT ME THE ONLY THING THAT STOPPED ME WAS WITH MY LUCK I WOULD BE RULLED OFF THE TURF

  • I recorded all three races of 1998 Triple Crown in a VHS tape and eigthteen years later, I still watch on my TV whenever I can. Real Quiet and Victory Gallop were two excellent thoroughbred horses. Greetings from Venezuels.

  • Bob Baffert and D. Wayne Lucas are kings in DERBY BRED for iPhone (on the App Store).

  • Nice memories but, if you had just continued on a minute or so, we could have heard Mr. Baffert's (in)famous comment about folks "finally believing my bullshit". On National t.v.!

  • I have seen some of thr racehorses in the past go through the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and win but the Belmont Stakes is a lot tougher , because the track is big and plus the race is longer than other 2 . Some have won it and many have lost it . It would be a miracle from our Lord God if there is a 12th Triple Crown Winner and I pray that it will happen . If it I'll Have Another wins then he wins and if loses then continue stay Triple Crown No. 11 .

  • i would love to see some coranados quest races.
