Reveling in History

For many years now I've said the only 2 sports achievements I needed to see in my lifetime were Kevin Harvick winning the Sprint Cup Championship and a Triple Crown. The first took 14 years, the second took 37 years, but amazingly I got to witness both within the span of 6 short months.

I collected Sunday's newspapers with articles on American Pharoah's Triple Crown win, and decided to gather them together on the bed with the hopes that Truffles would pose with them. She had other ideas...she instantly climbed on top of the papers and started rolling around on them.

I guess my little girl is reveling in history just as much as I am!





In case you missed it...I will *never* tire of watching this!!!

This is very exciting! My grandmother always watched and would speak of the previous triple crown winners fondly. She passed away this year and I have to think she would have so enjoyed it!

Mom still remembers Secretariat winning it all. But since then she has turned off of horse racing she feels it is a cruel sport that gets away with a lot because of the money and glamour, you never see the seedy, dark side. Like the horse that broke down at Belmont and was put down on the same track before American Pharoah won. Sorry to take away your joy hope you understand! Love Dolly

we were so sad last year when California Chrome didn't win, but were so elated that American Pharoah did! It just goes to show California breeding isn't all that bad :)

She’s posing with them better than I would! Pop refused to watch cos he said horseracing is cruel to animals.
