I'll Have ANOTHER Open Forum
On Saturday, I'll Have ANOTHER won the Preakness in Baltimore by a neck. Preakness is the second of three races that comprise the US Triple Crown. I'll Have ANOTHER also won the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago. If he wins the Belmont Stakes on June 9th, he'll be the first horse to win the US Triple Crown in 34 years. The last Triple Crown winner was "Affirmed" in 1978. Oh, and one other thing, the runner up in the first two races, Bodemeister, will not be competing at Belmont.
One of the musicians in this next video is one of the commenters here and a supporter. He wrote a song for the band called 'That Barbarous Relic' which he tells me is still in rehearsal. Here's a recent write-up in NPR Music. The band's new album, Safety Fifth, will be out June 12th.
