California Chrome Triple Crown Odds

California Chrome comes into the Belmont Stakes as the heavy favorite to win it. Winning the Triple Crown is the highest honor than can bestowed on a horse and that is just what California Chrome is look to achieve after taking the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. California Chrome's updated odds to win the Tripe Crown are -125 for yes he will and -105 for no he won't.

To win the Triple Crown a 3 year old horse must win the Kentucky Derby, The Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes all in a 6 week period. That is a tough task as evidenced by the fact that there have been just 11 Triple Crown Winners in the history of thoroughbred racing.

The very first winner of the Triple Crown was Sir Barton, back in 1919, but it wasn't called the Triple Crown back then as that term wasn't used at the time. Later in 1948, Sir Barton was recognized as the first Triple Crown winner. The phrase Triple Crown was actually used for the first time in 1930, when Gallant Fox won it.

The only Jockey to have ever won the Triple Crown twice was Eddie Arcaro, who won in first in 1941 while riding Whirlaway and then again in 1948 while riding Citation. In 1977 Seattle Slew became the first and so far the only horse to ever win the Triple Crown while undefeated.

The last Triple Crown winner was Affirmed back in 1978 and that makes this the longest drought between Triple Crown winners. The Previous long was the 25 years from Citation's win in 1948 to Secretariats Win in 1973.
