Cindy Lauper has been a favorite since I was a young girl. I just love how over the years she has stayed true to her rocker look and individual style.

The race is 1 and 1/4 miles long and is a Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbred horses.

It is followed by the Preakness Stakes and then the Belmont Stakes. The horse must win all three races to win the Triple Crown. Only 11 horses have won the Triple crown since the inception of the triple crown in the late 1800's.
