1.Baffert saddled Real Quiet in 1998, and the colt was beaten by only a nose by Victory Gallop in the Belmont Stakes. [Baffertís first Triple Crown candidate, Silver Charm, also was second in the Belmont, beaten by three quarters-of a length by Touch Gold in 1997.]
2.The precedent for a trainer of two Triple Crowns is Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons, who won the three races with Gallant Fox in 1930 and Omaha in 1935. [Ben A. Jones sometimes is described as having won two Triple Crowns, with Whirlaway in 1941 and Citation in 1948. Technically, he was the trainer of record of Citation only in the Derby, and his son Jimmy Jones was credited in official race charts with that championís Preakness and Belmont victories.]
3.The Preakness of 1918 was run in two divisions, with War Cloud winning one of the races and Jack Hare Jr. the other.
