There is no harness horse triple crown
Silver Charm won the first two triple crown races (the Derby and the Preakness). Touch Gold won the Belmont...so no triple crown winner in 1997.
The Kentucky Derby is the first leg of the Triple Crown, a horse that wins the Kentucky Derby, The Preakness, and the Belmont Stakes becomes the Triple Crown Winner
Kentucky...Plain and simple!
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.
Sir Barton in 1919
The baseball batting triple crown and horse racing triple crown were both won in 1937. Joe Medwick of the St. Louis Cardinals won in baseball and War Admiral won in horse racing. The baseball pitching triple crown and horse racing triple crown were both won in 1930 and 1937. In 1930, Lefty Grove of the Philadelphia Athletics won in baseball and Gallant Fox won in horse racing and, in 1937, Lefty Gomez of the New York Yankees won in baseball and War Admiral won in horse racing.
The "Triple Crown" is usually referring to the "Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing". There are three races: The Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.

Because it is the first race in the Triple Crown and if a horse wins it then there is a possibility for a Triple Crown winner.
horse racing was probably the first sport to use the term triple crown. obviously, this term is used in other sports such as baseball, but it originated from horse racing.
It will be easier to list what is part of the horse racing triple crown:Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.
