War Emblem (2002)

Jockey Victor Espinoza had never seen War Emblem until the morning of the Kentucky Derby, but that didn't stop this pair from rolling to a win that day, nor at the Preakness a few weeks later. Stumbling out of the gate at the Belmont, the dark-brown colt spent his energy to overcome the pack and then faded, losing to Sarava.
