Any one else been watching beautiful race horse that's been smoking all those other high priced horses ? Kind of a rags to riches story . I can't wait to see if he wins the race in NY on June 7th . The best part is the owner seems modest and as common as all of us . I will have my fingers crossed for them he wins # 3 in NY.


I like SINCLAIR and old American made stuff ... No china items.

I've been watching for sure. One of my "mini" collections is old Kentucky Derby glasses....I have most all from 1950 to date, except for the last year or two as it takes a couple years for them to show up at the flea markets this direction. Just another thing to look for when I'm out and about!

I know nothing about Horse Racing...

But, have to admit that I try to watch; The Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes, each year...

I am looking forward to watching "Chrome" attempt the Triple Crown... And I hope he is able to accomplish the feat...

I watch the races and even won a few bucks I know nothing about horse races but liked the name California chrome. Its funny when they bought the horse every one laughed at them. They formed partnership D.A.P ( dumb ***** partners) because everyone thought they were fools. Who is laughing now. Hope they win Belmont for triple crown!
