Triple Crown 2008

Yesterday I worked on a graphic about another kind of horse race: the Triple Crown. Big Brown has a shot at winning this weekend’s Belmont Stakes, which would make him the 12th horse to win the Triple Crown (meaning, he’d won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes). This graphic, an interactive version of a graphic produced for the newspaper, ranks the 11 Triple Crown winners and offers biographical information and race-finish stats.
