Seattle Slew who passed away on the day of the Kentucky Derby in 2002
There is a filly that won the Triple Crown but it is the Filly Triple Crown also known as the Triple Tiara. The horse name is Ruffian. This horse is the first filly to win the Triple Crown.
it was Carl Yastremitzki (i have no idea how to spell his last name sorry)
It's a bit of an awkward question, as the Triple Crown is not a single event but, as the name suggests, a series of three races. But no, his combined time in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes is far and away the fastest of any Triple Crown winner. Each were--and still are--track records.
No horse won the Triple Crown in 1970. The closest to that year was Secretariat in 1973.
Affirmed, in 1978.
In no particular order: Secretariat, Count Fleet, Citation, Affirmed, Whirlaway, Seattle Slew, Sir Barton, Omaha, Gallant Fox, Assault, War Admiral.
