History of the Name
The name Affirmed Capital Group was inspired by one of the greatest racehorses of our time – the Triple Crown winning Affirmed. Since Affirmed’s prestigious achievement in 1978, only one horse has matched this feat (American Pharaoh), breaking a thirty-seven year drought.
To guarantee his victory in the Belmont stakes race and thus the Triple Crown, Affirmed led and set a very slow pace, going head to head with rival horse Alydar. For much of the race Affirmed, and his jockey Cauthen, along with Alydar and jockey Jorge Velasquez, were neck and neck. Affirmed then seemed to tire, but just when it seemed like Alydar was going to claim victory with his nose in front at mid-stretch, at that pivotal moment Cauthen went to a left hand whip – a tactic he had never before used. Affirmed won the Triple Crown and cemented his name as one of the leading thoroughbred race horses in history, and will forever be regarded as a true hall of famer.
The drive and desire exemplified through Affirmed’s accomplishments are the characteristics that Affirmed Capital Group constantly strive toward. Edging out competitors and providing lasting partnerships are the central ideals upon which Affirmed Capital operates. Much like the legendary Triple Crown winner, our company is driven by success and excellence aimed at being the top investment firm in the industry, providing partners with the greatest opportunity for achievement.
