In 1977, Seattle Slew became the 10th Triple Crown winner and the second in one decade. A bargain buy at just $17,500 at auction as a yearling, not much was expected of him. Even after winning the Kentucky Derby and remaining undefeated, Seattle Slew received little respect until he won the Preakness. Seattle Slew won the Belmont in the slop to remain undefeated in his career.
