Here’s to Big Brown… The most recent in a string of ‘almost got there’ Triple Crown seekers. A combination of factors probably conspired to keep the big horse from finishing first, but to those super disappointed out there, it was only another race, so far he looks sound (good on his feet) and if there is anything else wrong, his jockey probably saved him from serious injury. He didnt force the horse to race when something was obviously wrong. The jockey did his job and the horse took a sick day. Life happens. Sure, I’d love to see a Triple Crown go all the way through, but watching a horse take a jewel is still pretty neat.
