War Emblem on Verge of Triple Crown Glory.: With the death of the great Seattle Slew this is the first time there has not been a living triple crown winner. There have been 11 triple crown winners since 1919, and for the most part their roads to glory were just as unlikely as that of War Emblem. But Bob Baffert has been here before, in 1997 and 1998 with Silver Charm and Real Quiet, and failed to win the Belmont and the triple crown. War emblem has the speed, but does he have the bottom? Three times a charm?
