Belmont Stakes Coming Up- June 9th
The beautiful brown stud, I’ll Have Another, is still in the race for the triple crown. A feat that hasn’t been accomplished in 34 years!
Affirmed was the last Triple crown winner in 1978 and since then 11 horses have won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, but none have won the ultimate title.
I was bouncing on the couch watching the Preakness. Bodemeister ran at the front the whole race as usual, but Mario Gutiérrez let I’ll Have Another go at the perfect time so that he could use his kick and win by a nose. It was so exciting and almost identical to his Kentucky Derby win! If he would have waited another second I’ll Have Another wouldn’t have had enough track to pass up Bodemeister.
The Belmont Stakes have already sold out in anticipation of the Triple Crown try. The race will be fun June 9th.
I pushing for I’ll Have Another, obviously, and I think he can do it. It’s a mile and a half, but this horse can run and his kick is amazing. If Gutiérrez helps him run a perfect race once again, I think we’ll see another Triple Crown Winner!!
Check out the I’ll Have Another’s Preakness win!!
