The Black Stallion Challenge Cup; A Salute to Literacy.
Come join us as all five Marion County School Board Members, the Superintendent of Schools, The Mayor of Ocala, and the Sheriff of Marion County compete for the Cup. Coached by world class professionals. Free Admission!
It is a night of community fun designed to showcase literacy. It is part of the Black Stallion Reading Project, a five-year partnership program between the Ocala Horse Alliance and the Marion County Public School System, now in all 31 elementary schools in Marion County. The program uses the power and magic of the horse to promote reading and inspires children to set goals and develop pathways to achieve. All schools have an equestrian farm partner.
Can Rich Strike do it again? Or is it We the People – political favorite! Or Mo Donagal?
You gotta watch to see the action – c’mon you can spare the two minutes!

It’s been a strange year for everyone – including the horses, Since the triple crown was canceled then rescheduled the Belmont will be run today with no crowd. The race has been shortened as the mile and half was thought too long for these young horses that haven’t been running. Now 9 furlongs not 12. Furlong = 1/8 mile.
Belmont is usually the last of the three triple crown races but, with the delays and the Derby and Preakness have dates later in the season, this is the best fit for the track. Saratoga is opening later too so, for NY, this made the best sense.
The Kentucky Derby is Sept. 5 and the Preakness Stakes was rescheduled for Oct. 3,
