Citation - Secretariat - Man O War. Three true legends of US racing.

I'd put Whirlaway (1941 Triple Crown) in that bracket of champions.

Thank you for footage of "the favourite of my favourite" Triple Crown winners. Citation was a performing beauty not to mention a great racehorse.

How tough was Citation, he raced twice against older horses before the Kentucky Derby and won. Big Cy was entered and won a race in between the Preakness and Belmont, he was one tough guy.

In those first two runs against older horses he twice beat the reigning "Horse of the Year", Armed, then finished his 3YO season with 19 wins from 20 starts. Tough as tungsten, Citation.
