JEWELS OF THE TRIPLE CROWN
These eleven were more than just magnificent Thoroughbreds - they were stars, and their stories are full of the excitement and human interest that one associates with stardom. Each was a true personality, with both the charisma and the quirks that tend to mark those who rise from the ranks to the top! From the much-heralded and handsome AFFIRMED, all the way back to the obscure SIR BARTON, winner of the as yet unnamed Triple Crown in 1919; this exclusive feature reveals the diverse, exciting, and often suspense-filled personal histories of each of these race horse aristocrats and tells the fascinating account of the three races that lead up to each horse's coronation with rare film footage not seen by the public in decades.
A tremendous racing film that brings to life the horses that reached the pinnacle of racing - what every owner, trainer, and jockey strives for in this sport - to capture the much sought after, but rarely captured, elusive "Crown". If you could only have one horse racing feature - this is the one! Narrated by Jim McKay.
