Belmont Stakes

I’m a little behind on this post, but I wanted to wait until my friends had posted their photos. So here it is! We ventured out to Long Island a few weeks ago for Belmont Stakes for the second year in a row. Last year it poured for the entire day so this year’s weather of sunshine and high 70’s was much preferred!

There was a lot of hype about this year’s race because for the first time in 34 years a horse by the name of I’ll Have Another was going up for the Triple Crown. Everyone was pretty excited about the possibility of witnessing history at the track, but sadly the horse was scratched from the race the day before during practice. The disappointment was short-lived for spectators though and didn’t seem to affect attendance numbers too bad.

I didn’t end up actually betting any of my own money on any horses, but I had just as fun of a time suggesting horses for the boys to bet on. None of which actually won, so it was probably a good thing it wasn’t my money!
