I’ll Have Another Out of the Triple Crown Run

I’ll Have Another, the horse that won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, has been pulled out of the Belmont Stakes, ruining the chance for the Triple Crown.

Funny Cide, Happy 10th Birthday

Funny Cide, the plucky chestnut colt who won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness in 2003, turns 10 years old today.Funny Cide raced until he was 7 years old, won $3.5 million, and is now retired to the Kentucky Horse Farm.  Alas, Funny Cide is a gelding, so it’s not the usual retirement at stud enjoyed by most Derby winners and NFL quarterbacks.  Still, he’s eating peppermints and enjoying life.
