Not Wrong, Just Late

In this post, I predicted Afleet Alex would win the Kentucky Derby. As everyone knows, he faltered down the home stretch and came in third. Never mind Sisyphus' after-the-fact pretending that he picked the correct horse.

However, in a dramatic Preakness Stakes, Afleet Alex made me proud, overcoming a serious stumble to win going away. Congratulations to Afleet Alex, jockey Jeremy Rose and all at Cash Is King Stables.

Up next in three weeks is the Belmont. My early prediction is that there will be a different winner there. Not many horses have enough left to run the long Belmont after two grueling races like the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness.

More later. . .
