    20 minutes until California Chrome races in the Belmont Stakes

    Not sure what the attraction is about the Triple Crown, but it's a fun distraction. In this case the owners are 2 middle class guys from California and that's a nice touch.

    It's not the 1970s. Nobody wins the Triple Crown any more.

    Relax. I was kidding. :p

    (But it's true, right? Who has won since the 70s? It happened three times in that decade, never since. Did the horses secretly form a union and say amongst themselves, "From now on, no single horse shall win all the glory! We will share it around henceforth!" 'Cause if they did, that would be kinda cool. :D )

    It did cross my mind that with all the bets placed on CA Chrome to win, there was some motivation to bribe that jockey to lose.
