2007 BelmontRags to Riches in the stretch with Curlin the 07 Preakness winner
Rags to Riches beating Curlin in the Belmont by a head. I know this isn't dog racing, but we have been following horse racing for the last few years. Alot of the same training techniques apply to racing and training dogs. It is a very exciting sport to follow. Rags to Riches is the first filly in 102 years to win the Belmont! It was an awesome race! In fact, all of the triple crown races: The Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont were all very exciting this year. Street Sense, the 2006 2 year old Breeders Cup winner came back in 07 to win the Derby. The 2 year old Breeders Cup winner has NEVER come back as a 3 year old to win the Derby, so history was made this year when Street Sense won. He also came out of 19th place along the rail to pass all 18 horses for the win! In the Preakness, it was Curlin (3rd place in the Derby) beating Street Sense by a nose. Sucks that another year will go by without a triple crown winner, but the races have been great!! And of course, history was made again last weekend when Rags to Riches won. There are so many great horses out there!! If you don't currently follow horse racing, check it out.

Thought I'd also post some pics of Ana in her "cool". That is what she calls it. It has been HOT here!! I can't wait for fall already!!

I never knew horse racing was so interesting. I guess I never really checked it out. Ana looks cute in the "cool". I like her suit.
