Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we continue counting down the top
We assembled a blue-ribbon panel of experts to rank the 12 winners of the Triple Crown. They will appear in every newsletter leading up to the Belmont with the final two revealed on
So, here’s No. 9
No. 9 Gallant Fox (1930) 50 votes
Gallant Fox was the second Triple Crown winner, even though it wasn’t formally named it at that time. He also is the only Triple Crown winner to sire another U.S. Triple Crown winner, Omaha, five years later. The panel had him all over the place, but clearly in the second division of horses. Three had him 10th, three had him ninth, three in eighth and two had him as high as seventh.
He also had the only trainer, possibly until now, to ever win the Triple Crow with two different horses. (Sunny) Jim Fitzsimmons also trained Gallant Fox’s son, Omaha. Gallant Fox’s career wasn’t too long but he did pack 17 races in, 11 of which he won.
As a 2-year-old, he didn’t win until his third start, the Flash Stakes over 5 ½ furlongs at Saratoga. He ran four more races that year, picking up his second win in the Junior Championship Stakes at Aqueduct. He then went on to win his next six races and nine of his last 10.
What makes his Triple Crown win different is he won
There were only four starters in the New York race, which he won with little trouble. If you want to watch another newsreel, here’s one on Gallant Fox’s Triple Crown run. View it here.
The only race he lost in his remaining six was the Travers Stakes. Tim Wilkin, who covers Saratoga racing for a living, gives you the hard fact. “Gallant Fox was beat in one of horse racing’s biggest upset when 100-1 shot Jim Dandy beat him in the Travers at Saratoga,” Wilkin said.
He was retired after his 3-year-old season and spent the next 22 years in the breeding shed. He died in 1954 at age 27.
The Times Triple Crown panel is composed of horse racing experts, journalists and racing secretaries. It members are Rick Hammerle, racing secretary at Santa Anita; Steve Haskin, racing author and columnist the BloodHorse; David Jerkens, racing secretary at Del Mar; Tim Layden, turf writer at Sports Illustrated; Tom Pedulla, lead writer for America’s Best Racing; Jay Privman, national correspondent for the Daly Racing Form; Jeff Siegel, veteran horseman and lead commentator at XBTV.com; Childs Walker, turf writer at the Baltimore Sun; Alicia Wincze Hughes, racing editor at the BloodHorse; Jon White, racing historian and morning-line maker at Santa Anita and Tim Wilkin, turf writer at the Albany Times Union.
Vote totals were 14 points for first place, 12 for second, 10 for third, and then one point less in descending order.

Santa Anita review
Off more than half-a-year, Hunt came firing in the stretch and passed favorite Heart To Heart to win the Grade 1 $400,000 Shoemaker Mile on the turf by a neck. It was Hunt’s first Grade 1 win, a key ingredient when it comes time for breeding.
Om ran a front-running race and showed a lot of heart down the stretch as Heart to Heart took the lead and was eventually passed by Hunt. Next Shared also passed Om at the wire to finish third. Hunt paid $21.60, $8.40 and $5.00.
“The time off did the horse a world of good,” said winning trainer Phil D’Amato. “We really kind of geared his campaign to focus toward Del Mar where he won three graded stakes last year, so these races were kind of preps leading up to the Del Mar meet.
Jockey Flavien Prat may have also been pointing to Del Mar, until opportunity presented itself.
“He has been training really well, pretty much like he was at Del Mar last summer just before he won two graded stakes,” Prat said. “He was fresh and got the job done.”
In the second graded stakes, Belvoir Bay won the Grade 2 $200,000 Monrovia Stakes over 6 ½ furlongs on the downhill turf course. Belvoir Bay squeezed between horses to take the lead and then it was all her race winning by 1 ½ lengths.
Ancient Secret was second and Compelled finished third. Belvoir Bay paid $5.60, $3.00 and $2.40.
“She kind of weaseled his way between the five (Algorhythmic) and the 10 (Mongolian Shopper) and he got a little bit of room,” winning trainer
Golden Gate back on Thursday
Now, the newsletter is aligned with the Southern California racing schedule which comes back on Friday, but Golden Gate will have an all-turf special card on Thursday. The day was set up because of the good season the track is having and the fact that when Golden Gate ends its meeting there will be no turf racing in Northern California for a while.
It’s a seven-race card starting at 12:45 p.m.. During the first four races, the rail will be set at 20 feet and the remainder of the card at zero. Smart move. Give Golden Gate Fields credit for adding this day.

BELVOIR BAY (GB) saved ground stalking the pace, bid between horses to gain the lead nearing midstretch, inched away at the furlong marker and proved best under some left handed urging. ANCIENT SECRET stalked between horses then a bit off the rail leaving the hill and into the stretch, split horses in midstretch and gained the place. COMPELLED was in a good position stalking the pace four wide to the stretch and outfinished rivals for third. CONIAH settled off the pace inside, cut the corner into the stretch, awaited room off heels in midstretch then split rivals late. BLAME IT ON ALPHIE settled off the rail then outside a rival leaving the hill, came four wide into the stretch and found her best stride late outside foes. MONGOLIAN SHOPPER had speed outside then stalked alongside a rival, bid three deep in the stretch and was outfinished. ALGORHYTHMIC sped to the early lead, set the pace a bit off the rail then inside, fought back in upper stretch and weakened some late. CAUSEWAY CAROLYN stalked between horses down the hill, came three wide into the stretch and lacked a rally. MISS SUGARS (GB) bobbled in a bit of a slow start, settled just off the rail, swung four wide into the stretch and could not offer the necessary late kick. Rail on hill at zero.
