Finally a Triple Crown Winner?

Private Jet to Belmont Stakes

We at Private Jets Charter have seen recent bookings soar for the upcoming Belmont Stakes.  The eyes of horse racing fans everywhere will be focused on the village of Elmont, NY this Saturday, June 9th in hopes of seeing history being made.  The last leg of the Triple Crown will be run as the Belmont Stakes gets underway.  Belmont Park is getting special attention this year because fans could see the crowning of the first Triple Crown winner in in 34 years, since Affirmed won in 1978.  After having won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, I’ll Have Another is the odds-on favorite to take Belmont, and thus the Triple Crown, making him only the 12th horse ever to win the coveted trifecta.

Preakness and Kentucky Derby Winner I'll Have Another Goes for the Triple Crown 2012

I'll Have Another

The pinnacle achievement in horse racing, winning the Triple Crown is particularly challenging because horses excel at races of different distances, with some stronger at the start while others have more stamina at the finish .  The varying lengths of the three tracks involved in the Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby at 1-¼ miles, the Preakness at 1-3/16 miles, and the Belmont Stakes at 1-½ miles, increase the difficulty and decrease the odds of producing a Triple Crown winner.  This year I’ll Have Another has won all four races he’s entered and has shown he’s particularly strong down the stretch.  If he has the endurance needed for the long track, history could indeed be made.
