Big Brown & The Triple Crown

How exciting to have a shot at the Triple Crown. You youngsters don’t remember the 1970’s when it somehow seemed common with Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed. There were great horses and match races (look up Ruffian vs. Foolish Pleasure sometime).

Horse racing was a major sport and Belmont regularly outdrew the Mets.

Best of luck to Big Brown tomorrow and may all the horses be healthy. This is something that hasn’t happened in 30 years. Six times in the last eleven years we’ve had a chance at this and all six failed. Hope that it happens, and savor all two minutes.
