Rags to Riches wins!

Score for the girls! I've been in horse heaven today. First, the gorgeous filly Rags to Riches won the Belmont Stakes. For the non-horsey folks, she's the first filly to win the Belmont since 1905. 1905! I've been watching her for a while and had my eye trained on her jockey's number seven silks through the two and a half minute race. Every year, no matter what horse is in the lead, my throat catches at the final pole. It's a stunning sport, that's for sure.

If that wasn't enough, ABC is showing Ruffian, a racing movie, tonight about a famous filly. I'll definitely be watching.

How is your weekend going so far?

I'm up to my neck!! I've got a test tomorrow and I haven't had any time to do much of anything else, LOL. It sucks having to study. :( Glad you're getting a lot of horse stuff! Bet it'll definitely come in handy. :)
