Lucky thirteen. That’s the head count at the post – unless there is a scratch.
There will be no chance of a triple crown this year as Country House bowed out and the contested first finisher, Maximum Security, withdrew as well. Often trainers don’t want to push their horses if they don’t like the odds – too many other races for the risk.
So with the field wide open it could be anyone’s race. Who is it going to be?
The favorite Baffert’s “Improbable”?
War of Will?
Or your favorite longshot?
The wonderful Carroll Ballard film of “The Black Stallion” (1979) turns forty in October!!

It’s already Christmas?? Hard to believe the year went by so fast! Sooo many things to see and do.
From Thanksgiving to New Years we always think about all the blessings from the past year! The people and places, the horses and their helpers, the hard work and lazy days – all the special memories.
There were heartbreaking stories of fires and loss, courageous stories of challenges and spirit.
