    I completed my personal steeplechasing "Triple Crown" last Saturday. All three races lived up to every expectation and would recommend they be on everyone’s short list. Here they are:

    English Grand National – Aintree – March 31, 1984.
    Velka Pardubicka – Pardubice – October 9, 2011.
    Maryland Hunt Cup – Glyndon – April 28, 2012.

    Just curious to hear if others have a jumps "Triple Crown" and if you’ve been able to complete it.

    For me, it has to be the King George, Gold Cup and Grand National.

    Shamefully, so far I only have the Gold Cup (1999) ticked off my list. I was 7 and had See More Business in a sweepstake. :D

    I’d go for Gold Cup (Davy Lad, Denman), King George (Captain Christy, The Fellow, Desert Orchid) and Grand National (Grittar). The only exotic I’ve been to is Breeders’ Cup Chase (Morley Street).

    Would love to see Grand Steeplechase at Auteuil (have been there) and Maryland Hunt Cup.
