It’s On Now

by John Furgele

Let the hype begin.  I’ll Have Another’s glorious stretch run to take the Preakness Stakes has left horse racing fans salivating for what will be a complete frenzy at the Belmont Stakes on June 9.  With the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness under his belt the California colt can capitivate America with one more win.  But, that win will come in the most grueling test of them all, the Belmont Stakes.  Not only is the longest, at 1 1/2 miles, but it comes at the end, the third race in five weeks.  Few horses can pull this off, as we know, it hasn’t been done since 1978.

Let the frenzy begin.
