The Pretenders To The Throne — #HorseRacing #Triplecrown

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

  Perhaps Caitlyn has so overwhelmed your news consumption, that you may have overlooked the Belmont Stakes, the third leg of horse racing’s triple crown, is this Saturday.  You are forgiven. 

This jester still remembers Secretariat who became the Athlete of the Year in 1973. That was three years before Caitlyn was man/athlete of the year. The halcyon 1970’s produced the last three Triple Crown winners (Secretariat, Seattle Slew & Affirmed). The last 37 years we have had 13 close calls (Big Brown who could not  finish at Belmont due to injury & I’ll Have Another was scrathed due to injury); let’s hold our breath on Saturday and wager on American Pharoah. Its time for some new racing royalty.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS … to American Pharoah, the Zayat Family, Bob Baffert, and of course the jockey (Victor Espinoza) on the first Triple Crown in 37 years!

    Now we have a Triple Crown Winner again!
