I am a very quiet, calm person by nature. When I found out I won my scholarship for my old school, I don’t remember even “wahooing.” The most incredible, baws concert I’ve ever been to, I hooted a bit. Coming down the stretch and seeing that muddy blaze face and the blue #3 trying to sneak past Paynter through the barrel of my camera lens, while I couldn’t hear my own individual throat in the uproar, I yelled out “GOOOOOOOO” to Union Rags in the incredible final strides of the Belmont Stakes. Swathed by a sea of Paynter supporters, the Dixie Union colt came on through. (Photo by Adam Coglianese)

Every time I see images of these two, I am glad I was born just months after the 1989 Triple Crown. I would have had the hardest time ever trying to decide which one I liked better. Easy Goer was perhaps one of the best-looking and most talented three-year-olds in the picture, but Sunday Silence has this great fleeting beauty about him along with the tenacity expected of an underdog.

I realize I probably sound like a d-bag, but while it was a good race I feel like Caleb’s Posse is the best miler in the country. To Honor and Serve didn’t stand much of a chance being stuck on the rail and having to check around Shackleford to get clear running room. But alas, Shack’s a beast. I still can’t get over how huge a horse he is every time I see photos of him!

I loved reading about this: Dubai contenders Royal Delta from Bill Mott’s barn and Lucky Chappy [IRE] from Graham Motion’s worked together around Meydan Racecourse, with the 16.2 hand Eclipse-winning mare followed closely by the pint-sized three-year-old colt. I wonder if Lucky’s going to prove himself worthy to her this weekend!
