Description: The 2016 Triple Crown is a series of three races, the 10 furlong Grade I Kentucky Derby the first Saturday in May, this year it is May 7th, at Churchill Downs, the 9.5 furlong Grade I Preakness Stakes at Pimlico two weeks later on May 21st, and the 12 furlong Grade I Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park three weeks later on June 11th. The Triple Crown is open to all 3 year old horses, however, there is a Kentucky Derby Points System that in designated races the first four finishers are awarded Derby Points. The 20 horses who earn the most points will earn a berth into the starting gate for the Kentucky Derby. The Point System means that fillies must race against the boys to earn Derby Points. All horses must also be nominated to the Triple Crown Series. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
