Watching American Pharoah win the Triple Crown at Belmont Park today, I was reminded of an article I read early in the day. The headline said: Science Says American Pharoah Won’t Win the Triple Crown.
So much for prognostications, huh? The spectacle surrounding a horse race, particularly at this elite level, is striking. First off, there’s the beauty and grace of these splendid horses. I can’t help but be in awe. There’s the pageantry, some 90,000 people gathered to cheer on their favorites … and perhaps to witness history being made, which in this case is exactly what happened.
