I have officially been sucked in. Alydar's story is so moving. Not to mention the rivalry between him and Affirmed. In the race for the Triple Crown which Affirmed won and the last horse to win the Triple Crown Alydar gave him a run for his money every time. And Alydar became the only horse in history to come in second in all three triple crown races. Alydar came in second with a total combined distance for all three races was less than 2 lengths! The Jockey's themselves have some pretty amazing storys too. Now tell me it wouldn't make for a fantastic movie.
Here they are the first of the three races the Kentucky Derby.
Second is the Preakness.
Last is the Belmont. It is a nail biter.
