History could be made this weekend.
On Saturday, California Chrome will attempt to become the twelfth Triple Crown winner in American horse racing history.
It's been 36 years since the last Triple Crown was clinched, but Chrome is already the undisputed best 3-year-old of 2014.
A win this weekend would catapult the Chestnut Colt, who comes from a long lineage of race horses and was bred in California, into history.
Chrome's trainers, Art and Alan Sherman, (father and son) say the horse is ready.
“I have good vibes about it," Art said. “I feel more confident coming into this race than any race I’ve ever won."
So what do you need to know to prepare for Saturday's Belmont Stakes? Read on!
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO WIN THE TRIPLE CROWN?
The Triple Crown is three races: the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes.
WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT BELMONT?
Belmont is notoriously the most challenging race in the Triple Crown. The track is one and a half miles, longer than both the tracks of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. Belmont is also the race with the most history – it was first raced in 1867.
SOUNDS EXHAUSTING. HOW MANY HORSES HAVE WON THE TRIPLE CROWN?
It's an exclusive club with only 11 horses with the title over the course of 95 years. Thoroughbred horse racing aficionados say that race horses and their respective training has changed throughout the years, so it’s gotten more difficult to win all three races.
