Rachel Alexandra crushed my dreams.

Just add this to the list of why I really dislike the Triple Crown races. Preakness Stakes winner, Rachel Alexandria, will not be running in the Belmont Stakes. Jess Jackson, the philly’s owner, says the girl just needs a rest frm beating up on the boys. Rachel Alexandra did not race in the Kentucky Derby, won by Mine That Bird, preventing her from winning the Triple Crown.

It’s frustrating when this kind of thing happens during the three most important races of the year. I get my hopes up every year about a horse winning the Triple Crown only to have my dreams dashed by an owner. I do understand the safety of the horse is important, but it’s tough not being able to see a horse win it all in your lifetime. It happened three times in the 70’s and hasn’t happened since. It’s a damn shame.

Jockey Calvin Borel will have a chance to win a personal Triple Crown with Mine That Bird. Good luck to him. I guess…
