2019 US Triple Crown Dates

The US Triple Crown is the biggest racing series in North America.
It includes the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.

We have the 2019 dates for each US Triple Crown race.

2019 Kentucky Derby date

The Kentucky Derby was run on Saturday May 4, 2019 and it was one of most talked about Kentucky Derbies in recent history.

First past the post was Maximum Security but it was later disqualified after causing significant interference around the top corner.

Country House was promoted to first at massive odds and it will go down in history as one of the most interesting decisions.

It's the first leg of the Triple Crown and the Churchill Downs feature always includes a wide-open field of three-year-olds all looking to get one step closer to the ultimate target.

2019 Preakness Stakes date

The 2019 Preakness Stakes is run on Saturday May 18, 2019.

The Preakness Stakes is always a popular race as the Kentucky Derby winner attracts big attention with bookmakers.

However, in 2019 the Kentucky Derby winner, Country House, won't be running in the Preakness. This is because of the tough trip in the wet conditions it endured.

Maximum Security won't take part either, so favouritism has gone to the Bob Baffert-trained Improbable.

2019 Belmont Stakes date

The Belmont Stakes 2019 is run on Saturday June 8, 2019.

The final leg of the Triple Crown brings a new element to the three-year-old series with an increased distance.
