A new website dedicated to the memory of Affirmed, America's last Triple Crown champion, has been launched by Affirmed Enterprises headed by Patrice Jacobs Wolfson.
The launch coincides with the attempt by I'll Have Another to join the ranks of Triple Crown winners in the 2012 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) June 9. Affirmed was the 11th and most recent to accomplish the feat in 1978.
Affirmed, a two-time Horse of the Year, was bred and raced by Mr. and Mrs. Louis E. Wolfson’s Harbor View Farm.
This new site includes photos, videos, articles, and memorabilia covering the entire racing and stallion career of Affirmed as well as the human connections. It also features an on-line “Scrapbook” containing personal mementoes from Mrs. Wolfson.
"My husband and I always believed that it was a privilege to be associated with Affirmed," said Patrice Wolfson. "This project has allowed me to relive so many great moments, and it pleases me that Affirmed’s many accomplishments are not diminished by the years. This has been a labor of love, and I hope past and future racing fans will enjoy it.”
There is a Facebook page in association with the new website which will provide a vehicle for additional photos to be shared as well as a way for fans to post their favorite memories.
The website's address is www.affirmedtriplecrown.com.
