About the Site

Starting with the Kentucky Derby and ending with the Belmont Stakes, the five weeks from early May to mid-June are an exciting time if you’re a horse racing fan.

And even if you’re not a horse racing fan it is hard not to get caught up in the tradition of the Kentucky Derby, the partying of The Preakness, and if you’re really lucky the excitement of a potential Triple Crown Winner at The Belmont.

Some of my earliest memories are of going to the races with my grandparents.  They knew every horse and jockey and taught me to read a race program.  My family always watched the Triple Crown Races and we always had some kind of small wager going, usually just a quarter, to make it more interesting.

This website is the result of my ongoing fascination with the races, horses, jockeys, and traditions of The Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.

Hopefully we will have another winner in my lifetime!
