War Emblem (2002)
Despite a jockey (Victor Espinoza) who had never seen the horse until the morning of the race, War Emblem won the Derby at 21-1 odds. After taking the Preakness, War Emblem stumbled at the start of the Belmont Stakes. He had the lead at the final turn before fading quickly as Sarava (70-1) took the difficult race.
