1970s / Affirmed Wins Triple Crown - 1978
When Affirmed won the thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown in 1978, the feat did not receive near as much publicity in the mainstream sports media as it should have, perhaps with good reason. There had been three Triple Crown champions in six years, including one just the year before (Seattle Slew). However, it would be 37 years before another horse (American Pharaoh) repeated the achievement. Here is Affirmed's narrow victory in the 1978 Belmont Stakes. Renowned CBS announcer Chic Anderson calls the race--the last major one of his career as he died of a heart attack the following March at age 47. Runner-up Alydar finished second in all three Triple Crown races in 1978.
