May and June are special times for me and have been since I was a very little girl. My Grampa was a horse fanatic. When I was 5 years old he gave me probably the best gift give ever. He walked down our driveway leading a small pinto pony, his name was Cesare and boy did he have spunk.This was the start of a life time of loving horses. Well back to May and June. On May 5th it was time to watch the Kentucky Derby, the winner I'll Have Another, owned by a Canadian.
I'll Have another wins The Kentucky Derby
Last night May 19th was the running of The Preakness and wow what a race. The conditions were perfect.
I'll Have Another wins The Preakness what an exciting finish!
Now here is the scoop we have not had a Triple Crown winner since 1978 when Affirmed came through as our first Triple Crown winner. We have been waiting a long time for another. Is I'll Have Another going to be the one? I sure hope so. I will be glued to the TV in June to see if he has what it takes.
Affirmed is the last Triple Crown winner and what a great horse. Hopefully I'll Have Another will be our next one. Here's hoping!!!!! Stay tuned for the big race.
My dear hubby is not really a horse person but I spend a lot of time watching hockey and tennis so each year when it comes to my favourite 3 horse races we watch them together and he has to admit he quite likes it. My Mom gets in on it too she called me to talk about it but I said we went out for dinner I will call you back as we taped it. I called her back and we had quite a time discussing it all.
