Moran: Is slippery Crown good for racing?
As any fan of horse racing knows, it’s been 34 years since there’s been a Triple Crown champion. That fact will be repeated again several times in the next two weeks in the build up to the June 9 Belmont Stakes.
“Racing needs a Triple Crown winner” has been a mantra both heard and said by the media and longtime racing fans.

Eclipse Award-winning writer Paul Moran asks that question in his latest column for ESPN.com.
