the quest for the triple crown

POST #    50

saturday at the belmont, funny cide attempted to become the first triple crown winner in 25 years. for those that are not familiar with the triple crown, it is composed of three races over 5 weeks: the kentucky derby, the preakness, and the belmont stakes. the belmont is the true test of a thoroughbred though because the race is 1.5 miles. races started at noon with the stakes running at about 6:30, so there was plenty of race action and opportunities to bet. the weather was horrible with rain all day which came down very hard at times. by the 11th race (the stakes), the track was rated at "sloppy".

the clydesdales were there to sell some beer.

horses are so cool.

my eyes, two times the normal size.
