Street Sense prepping for second leg on Triple Crown trail
Street Sense got a big leg up on the Triple Crown path with a win in the Kentucky Derby.
Hard Spun, some new rivals and a few holdovers would love to toss a giant roadblock in Street Sense’s run at racing immortality with a victory in the Preakness in two weeks.
“I’m sure going to try and keep that from happening,” Hard Spun trainer Larry Jones said on Sunday. “If he wins the Triple Crown, I’m going to try and make him earn it.”
It’s been 29 years since Affirmed swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont. Four other horses in the past six years have won the first two legs only to lose the 1 1/2 -mile Belmont, most recently Smarty Jones in 2004.
