all in The Sport

It is a common refrain among horse racing fans that they were introduced to the sport by a relative, often their father. This applies both to casual fans and to some of the greatest legends in the sport, including the unforgettable racehorse owner and breeder Harry Payne Whitney.

Experiential Squared, the parent company to the global racehorse ownership platform MyRacehorse, announced June 1 a $7 million funding round that includes several investors led by 1/ST through its 1/ST Racing & Gaming and 1/ST Technology business divisions.

Each week, members of the national media vote on the nation's top contenders on the Triple Crown trail in the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) Top Thoroughbred Poll.

The Three-Year-Old poll represents horses competing up to and through the Triple Crown. Rankings are based on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-1 voting system. First place votes are in parentheses.


Like the first two jewels of horse racing’s U.S. Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes has a rich history dating back to its inception in 1867 that means there is no shortage of interesting numbers associated with the race called the “Test of the Champion.”

If you look through racing history closely enough, you’ll find horses that had the misfortune of racing at the wrong time.

It’s the hand that fate dealt talented horses like Sham and Alydar, who became supporting characters to Triple Crown champions Secretariat and Affirmed.

Then there’s Easy Goer.
