Best Answer

There were 11 Triple Crown winners and the most famous was Secretariat in 1973. The first Triple Crown winner was Sir Barton in 1919. If you're into horse racing, you should check out a really cool racing game called horseracegame. The reason why I mention this game is because you can actually jockey and fictitiously bet all the Triple Crown winners throughout history. You can even build races combining the Triple Crown horses.

My favorite Triple Crown winner was Secretariat. Gee, that's no secret! But I also think Citation who won the Triple Crown in 1948 was a great horse, also. I tried that video game you were talking about and it's been a blast racing the Triple Crown winners.

Were all the triple crown winning horses related to secretariat?

No. Secretariat is actually the 9th Triple Crown winner. He won it in 1973. It would be impossible that the other Triple Crown winners, such as Sir Barton, who was the first to win it all the back in 1919, could be related to Secretariat. In fact, Secretariat's successful foals were mostly fillies, and they became great broodmares. Secretariat has no Triple Crown winners in his pedigree.
