Here is our synopsis
As some of you may know, the Kentucky Derby is known for its hats and “summery” dresses. The Preakness?….well that’s known for its infield which is less than stylish. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the Preakness and its popularity because of the infield. However, I can’t change the fact that within the grandstand, many people don’t seem to feel they should change out of their pajamas. Which only makes our work harder…we aren’t trying to cover jean shorts and sneakers on a 50 year old man. (Sigh)
But anyways!!! It was still a great day, sun was shining bright, drinks were flowing and the equine athletes brought their A- game against one another to take home the title. When our team arrived, there were plenty of white chairs open on the ground floor of the grandstand. However, there wasn’t an open seat in the house by 6:18 pm when the horses running in the Preakness took off out of the gate.
Almost directly in front of the finish line, you couldn’t see I’ll Have Another around the last turn until he kicked it in to third gear and began gaining on Bob Baffert’s Bodemiester. It was even harder through the hundreds of heads to see that I’ll Have Another took the win! As everyone rushed to the betting windows to get their payouts, people still couldn’t believe that he surpassed the powerhouse Bodemiester AGAIN! Once the results were official, you heard the shocked noises ripple through the crowd.
So there you have it! We have our first Triple Crown Hopeful since Big Brown in 2008! The next day, I’ll Have Another took the van ride to his temporary home at the Belmont Race Track in New York. He had a few days of walking and gaining his strength back and is now back into his training regime to prepare for the big run on June 9th!
More than ever, as said in our email, we need to remember the traditions of American culture and horse racing is one of those! We are looking to promote our industry as a fun fashionable event that you can bring your family, friends and colleagues to bond and have a great time! Rude people aren’t going to help this promotion!!
