When Affirmed took the triple crown back in 1978, few could have anticipated the elongated drought sustained until the next triple crown winner was anointed in the world of horse racing. But the wait could finally be over as I'll Have Another sits just one victory away from claiming the elusive title of triple crown winner. But with the post positions recently revealed, the majestic beast finds itself in a place few horses would want to start as they try to make history.
