Coastal - 1979 Belmont Stakes
Following directly after Seattle Slew and Affirmed, the racing world looked poised to welcome a third consecutive Triple Crown winner. However, it was not to be. Whether you attribute the loss to a controversial ride or an injury caused by a safety pin, Spectacular Bid is typically considered the best Kentucky Derby/Preakness winner to fail to win the Belmont Stakes. Coastal took advantage to take the victory. Final time: 2:28 3/5 Owner: William Haggin Perry Trainer: David Whiteley Jockey: Ruben Hernandez
