Rags to Riches In the 139th Belmont Stakes

I am not a gambler....not really...I buy the occasional lottery ticket....

Leading up to the Belmont Stakes on June 9th there were so many articles about Rags to Riches in the New York newspapers....

It seemed like she was a really interesting horse with the right breeding and the right trainer....

She was relatively unknown though since she had not raced in the other triple crown races....

The more I read about her the more I had a feeling that she would be a winner....so I placed a bet on her...and I won.

The experience has made me even more interested in the whole world of horse racing.

I have found that I know more about it that a lot of other people because I have been interested in it for a while although I have not been following the players day to day.  I guess you could say I just understand the dynamics...trainer, jockey, horse, track....the key parameters that influence the outcome....

Anyhow...it was fun watching the race and seeing my horse win ...especially since it made history...so few filly's have won the Belmont.

It was exhilarating.

Congratulations

Congratulations on your win! I am glad you found something to have fun with. I have an aunt and uncle who go to a casino on the weekends to have fun rather than the movies, I know the inherent entertainment value. Be careful that its not your retirement plan though :-)
