Triple Crown Horseracing Betting OddsThe road to the Triple Crown is officially on, and the action on the horse racing lines is going to be taking center stage here at BookMaker Sportsbook. Join us today as we break down what it will take for one of these three-year old horses to win the Triple Crown in 2014!

Some of the best horses in the world have been taking to tracks all across the country. Today at BookMaker Sportsbook, we'll give you the heads up on the 2014 Triple Crown. The horse racing lines in the Triple Crown kick off with the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 3rd, continue on Saturday, May 17th with the Preakness Stakes, and finish on Saturday, June 7th at the Belmont Stakes.

There certainly isn't a tougher task to pull off on the horse racing betting lines than to win the Triple Crown, and in truth, there might not be a tougher feat in all of sports. Since 1919, there have only been 11 horses to win the Triple Crown, and none have done it since Affirmed in 1978. There were three Triple Crown winners in the 1970s, as Secretariat, Seattle Slew, and Affirmed all pulled off the trick, but prior to that, you had to go back into the 1930s and 1940s to find the rest of the winners. Sir Barton did it in 1919, and it took 11 years for Gallant Fox to do it. Omaha, War Admiral, Whirlaway, Count Fleet, Assault, and Citation are the other winners of the great prize in the Sport of Kings.

The truth of the matter is that there really hasn't been a pony come all that close to beating the horse racing gambling lines in the Triple Crown for years. I'll Have Another won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, but he never started in the Belmont Stakes. Big Brown came close in 2008, ultimately losing to a 60 to 1 longshot named Da'Tara in the Belmont Stakes. Smarty Jones, Funny Cide, and War Emblem were all Triple Crown candidates coming to Belmont Park, but none of the three could muster making it around the 1 1/2-mile circuit in front. Three straight came close again in the 1990s, as Silver Charm, Real Quiet, and Charismatic all came one leg shy of the Triple Crown.

A total of 20 horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown, only to ultimately lose out in the Belmont Stakes.

For good measure, fillies also have their version of the Triple Crown known as the Triple Tiara, and the only filly to win all three legs of the Filly Triple Crown was Davona Dale in 1979. Most fillies though, choose not to run in both the Kentucky Oaks and the Black Eyed Susan two weeks later, which is why there aren't many who have even attempted the feat.

This year, there aren't many that figure to have the real shot of winning the Triple Crown. In fact, BookMaker Sportsbook has a prop up at +800 on the horse racing betting lines to win the Triple Crown. A 'no' wager is lined at -1250, though you must consider the fact that the winner of the Kentucky Derby is almost always a favorite and a big one at that at the Preakness Stakes. A 'no' bettor is probably served betting SU against the winner of the Kentucky Derby at Pimlico, and then doing so against at the Belmont Stakes in the event that that horse does go on to win at the Preakness Stakes as well.
