In the United States, the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, commonly known as the Triple Crown, is a title awarded to a three-year-old Thoroughbred horse who wins the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes.

Secretariat holds the stakes record time for each of the three races. His time of 2:24 for ​1 12 miles in the 1973 Belmont Stakes also set a world record that still stands.[1]
