What is the selection process of horses in the triple crown?

The selection of horses to run in the Triple Crown begins with horses meeting what are called "race conditions" for the Kentucky Derby; conditions stipulate the age, gender and past performance requirements each horse must meet to enter a given race. The Kentucky Derby is written for 2 year-olds, fillies and colts, [here it says something like "...non-winners of x number of races..." and/or "winners of x number..."] The winner of the Kentucky Derby gets to run in the Preakness, and the winner of the Preakness gets to run in the Belmont. So the "selection process" begins with being eligible to run the Derby.

How old must a horse be for the derby?

Assuming you are speaking of the Kentucky Derby: This Grade I Stakes race is for 3-year-old Thoroughbreds of either sex. A Thoroughbred technically turns its next age on January 1 of any given year. Because horses generally are born between January and June, a horse entering the Kentucky Derby, which is held in May, usually will be 3-years-old both technically (because of the January 1 date) and actually (because most are born before the early May date of the Derby) -- but there may be as much as a 4- or 5-month difference in the actual ages of the horses in the Derby.

Which pair of Kentucky Derby Winners were foreign bred?
