This time last year a lot of folks got their hopes up that California Chrome would be the first horse in the past four decades to take the Triple Crown, the highest honor in American horse racing. It didn’t happen. Now, here we go again! Some people think American Pharaoh has an even better shot at the coveted title. Tomorrow at the Belmont Stakes we will again have our eyes glued on a fond hope. I know I’ll be watching! Lots of luck, ole boy!
All of us, like these fine steeds, have a shot at greatness. Whether we make it or not, is not just in the “hand we are dealt,” but in how we play it. Now mull that over as you watch the race, and if you want to write a book, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
