Triple Crown Near Misses

3 of 10

Smarty Jones (2004)

The unbeaten horse captured the Derby, won the Preakness by a record 11 1/2 lengths and headed to Belmont seemingly destined to become the first Triple Crown winner in 26 years. It didn't happen. Longshot Birdstone (36-1) tracked down Smarty in the homestretch to spoil the third leg. (AP Photo/Al Behrman)
