The 2012 Belmont Stakes preview
There's a chance something could happen in two weeks that hasn't happened since 1978. Do you have any idea how long that is?
Since 1978, we have had Facebook, Twitter and Google introduced. "The West Wing" has come and gone, so has "Seinfeld." Disco was hot, so was grunge rock, now it is all about Gym Class Heroes and Maroon 5. American Idols fight Dancing With the Stars.
What we haven't had over the last 34 years is a horse good enough and lucky enough to win 3 races in 5 weeks.
I'll Have Another has a chance - a good chance - to win the Triple Crown. Just like Big Brown or Smarty Jones and War Emblem had a chance. This is big for the horse and for the sport.
June 9 is a big day in sports, not just thoroughbred racing.
I'll Have Another.
It's been 34 years, maybe it's time we all have another. Another Triple Crown winner would be just fine with me.
