Well done, Ashley! I believe one of the common misconceptions to the casual fan is the Triple Crown is a "series," implying the races are connected to each other, when in fact they are not and never meant to be. It's extremely hard to win all three and only the best of the best can accomplish the feat. California Chrome fell short of his goal but he is still a great horse who won 2 of the Classic races for 3 year olds. He ran his heart out in the Belmont, and that makes him a winner to me.
People easily spout their "opinions" on the internet and just like our political climate these days think it's OK to harass and ridicule someone who has an opinion different from their own. Try not to let "those" people get you down, in the short or long run, it's doesn't matter a hill of beans what they think. They are absolutely irrelevant to your life or opinions.
Thank you so much for this article, Ashley. All of the ignorant posts are very tiresome. I usually have more paitience, but it's been just about all I can do not to call some of these people out with their ignorant and foolish statements. He was beloved by all who followed him and most especially by his connections. He was a strong, determined, athletic race horse who gave his all every time, not because they made him do it, but because he loved what he did. He'll be missed for many years to come. RIP Saginawsome, you'll be thought of and missed for many years to come.
I've thought of nothing else and prayed for Rachel all day. Thanks so much for keeping us updated, Brian.
I've been praying for her all day. I can barely think of anything else.
Excellent article, Ashley!

Brian, I've tried to post a comment but the format is not agreeing with my computer! The share, tweet menu at the top pops up when I try to comment. I'll just say I agree 100% regarding Paynter a
The most hated is easy, that would be Rick Dutrow, the trainer everyone loves to hate. Most loved would be Penny Chenery.
I had friends win the golden ticket contest at Keeneland to visit Rachel and her colt. His barn name is Taco! He's a sweet cuddly little guy!
