Third Time’s a Charm

What a great name for a racing horse that would make, especially if that horse went on to win the Triple Crown, as Josè Santos has a chance to do on the back of Funny Cide at the Belmont Stakes on 07 June. I don’t normally follow horse racing much, but all the overblown hype surrounding this year’s Kentucky Derby perked up my ears a bit more than usual, so when I saw this Hartford Courant article, I just had to share it. It’s easily the best article I’ve read on the whole controversy, and quite correctly chastises the Miami Herald and Derby steward for being irresponsible in their handling of the issue.
