Kentucky Cup Juvenile Stakes (2000) Hollywood Futurity (2000) San Felipe Stakes (2001) Santa Anita Derby (2001) Haskell Invitational Handicap (2001) Travers Stakes (2001)

Point Given is an American Hall of Fame champion racehorse foaled on March 27, 1998 in Kentucky. As a three-year-old, he won the 2001 Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes, along with the Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year. He is the only horse in history to have won four $1,000,000 races in a row: the Preakness Stakes, the Belmont Stakes (in which he ran the fourth fastest Belmont ever, faster than both Seattle Slew and Affirmed, each of which achieved the Triple Crown), the Haskell Invitational Handicap, and the Travers Stakes. His lifetime race record was 9 wins out of 13 starts with 3 second places, earning $3,968,500. The only time he ever finished out of the money was in the 2001 Kentucky Derby, where he ran 5th.

Point Given was the first horse since 1967 to win the Grade 1 $1,000,000 Preakness Stakes, the G1 Belmont, and the G1 Travers Stakes, joining an elite club of racing greats who achieved that triple: Man o' War (1920), Whirlaway (1941), Native Dancer (1953), and Damascus (1967).
