The Winner and Superstitions at the track


Tonalist wins Belmont Stakes, 
denies California Chrome a Triple Crown
I AM HEART BROKEN.  A sad day.
The last Triple Crown winner was Affirmed in 1978.

Saturday's 146th running of the Grade
1, $1.5 million Belmont Stakes,



This sweet baby Chrome came in 4th. 
He was blocked and I am sick, he should have won.
I could kiss that velvet nose.


Superstitions at the track.
This is not necessarily
 a welcome distinction. 
In the highly superstitious world of racing,
the color of a horse’s feet is just one type of omen. 
One white foot is considered good; 
four white feet are considered bad.
Well, it’s an old saying,
 four white legs and feed him to the crows.
or

One white foot, buy him; two white feet, try him...

Two white hind socks on a horse.

three white feet, look well about him

four white feet, go without him.

Hang a horseshoe over the door for good luck


Here's some horse 
sayings for fun:

You can lead a horse to water
 but you can’t make it drink.

Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

Straight from the horse’s mouth.
A horse of different color.
Every horse thinks its own pack heaviest.
A one-horse race.
Don’t back the wrong horse.
Don’t beat a dead horse.
Don’t change horses midstream.
Don’t put the cart before the horse.
Don’t spare the horses
years ago our Vet, used to say,"The hoof is a  window of most everything else
 that’s going on in the horses  body."
Remember these?
And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider's name was Death.
Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! 
The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness .
Horses are GOD's favorites. They are better that most humans.
Have a great Sunday.
