In 1948, Citation furthered his campaign toward becoming a legend. He began the season with a handful of wins, Then Eddie Arcaro was tapped to jockey Citation. The first race pairing the two was a disappointing loss at the Chesapeake Trail Stakes. This would be the last race.

Citation would go on to capture the 1948 Triple Crown and be named Horse of the Year. By the end of his 3-year-old season, he had a total of 27 victories and two 2nd place finishes out of 29 starts.
