Lots of horse talk this week, but I can’t help it – tomorrow is the Belmont Stakes! Race horse I’ll Have Another has won both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, and tomorrow will race to win the first Triple Crown title since 1978. For those of us who have yet to witness a Triple Crown win in our lifetime, this is super exciting. We’ve had our hearts broken before by Funny Cide, Smarty Jones, Big Brown, and four others who won the first two legs but couldn’t pull through in the third race.
We’re all hoping this year will be different. The Belmont Stakes is the longest of the three races, which is why even though a horse can finish extremely well in the first two, the third race is always the toughest. I love Triple Crown season, but those 3 minutes are the most nerve-racking minutes of my life! Ahh!
Anyway, back to the point. Otie ran his own Belmont Stakes race this week and would like me to report to everyone that he won. He is quite the Thoroughbred.
