So did anyone else tune in to watch Big Brown flame out at Belmont? Not only did he fail to win the race and take home the Triple Crown, but his jockey Kent Desormeaux pulled him up down the stretch and the horse finished dead last. Lame.
On a related note, Josiah and I made a return trip to the track at Finger Lakes on Saturday. Just before he left his grandmother gave him $2 to bet on a horse. Sure enough, he picked another winner and his $4.20 in winnings went straight into his piggy bank. I went 2-for-3 on the day, and my winnings are in his piggy bank too. If we keep this pace up we just might be able to put him through college!
