I hope Funny Cide wins the Brooklyn.

PS: My beautiful classic wooden racing sailboat is named "Charismatic" -- you can guess why.

Giacomo won the Derby, and Afleet Alex won the Preakness. They are both running in the Belmont.

Derby -- Giacamo (outta nowhere)
Preakness -- Afleet Alex (who should have run the Derby)

Hopefully, Afleet Alex wins it, I am with you. I missed the Preakness. Any horse that almost falls and goes on to win, is a true Champion in my book.

That's why I love Charismatic - wins the Derby and Preakness and then breaks his leg in the Belmont and still runs 2nd. My kinda horse.

A MOVER: Preakness winner and Belmont Stakes favorite Afleet Alex moved to a new barn Thursday. The surprising move came a day after Nolan's Cat arrived from Churchill Downs and was stabled in the same barn as Afeet Alex.

Trainer Tim Ritchey said it provides better access for the media. But there might be another factor: In the spring, several of Roman's horses were diagnosed with the strangles, a respiratory disease, in Florida.

Afleet Alex for me!!!!!! But I am worried about the distance. If he does not win, I hope Giacomo wins.

Certainly not. Anywhere you have young horses congregated together, you can have Strangles.
