What a wonderful surprise. I always watch the Triple Crown races. I've loved horses all my life and had my own sweet sorrel, Smokey Rebel, many years ago.
I was so busy working in the gardens, I forgot about the race. Luckily I had thought to set my satellite box to record it. Last nite when I finally settled into my recliner, I turned on the TV and there it was listed, the Belmont Stakes.
Imagine my surprise when American Pharoah won it, thereby winning the coveted Triple Crown, not won since 1978 by Affirmed. That means he won the Kentucky Derby, then the Preakness Stakes, and finally the Belmont Stakes. He's one of very few to join that club of fantastic thoroughbreds.
So I salute you, American Pharoah, and wish you a wonderful future.
