  • Description

    The latest champion race-horse in the United States is Seattle Slew, who won the Belmont Stakes on Saturday (11 June) to take the American Triple Crown. After taking the first two races in the premier series - the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness - his value was estimated at several million dollars. But now Seattle Slew, who's never lost a race, is valued at some ten million after his Belmont Stakes Victory, the third race in the Triple Crown. He took it four lengths ahead of Run Dusty Run and Sanhedrin - a report on the race in the last lap.

    Secretariat was the ninth horse to take Triple Crown, in 1973. But he did loss one race in his previous performances.
