Long shot wins at Belmont 

Not being much for the ponies, I did not watch the Belmont Stakes yesterday. This most demanding of the Triple Crown stakes races was, however, very exciting, won by a long shot in the final moments (a $2 bet paid $51.20). The call of the race, now on YouTube, is a classic.

Anything can happen on a sloppy track.

It doesn't bother some horses while others just don't like it.

Good post, TH. I had missed it.

His father was a mudder! His mother was a mudder!

I love mud. (Quite possibly the most profound thing I have ever said on this blog.)

Thanks for posting, TH!
