Who hop!

American Pharoah won the Triple Crown horse race...first in 37 years since Secretariat won! 😊 Made my day much better. Too bad I didn't bet $ on him! Lol 🙏🌼

Woo hoo... Not who hop! Anyone know how to turn off auto correct? 😕

You need to go into your settings and there should be (depending on the kind of phone you have) a place that says Auto Correct and a slide or a spot you can check or uncheck to turn it off. I just watched the race and this morning really had a feeling that he was not going to be able to win the race because of the extra 1/4 mile of track they have to run at Belmont. It was a fantastic (although boring) race because the way they came out of the gates is the places almost all of them stayed in. I was really surprised that American Pharoah had the wind and stamina to still have what it took to let him out all the way and he won by about 5 horse lengths. It was really exciting.. I was happy for the owners, the trainers and most of all, the horse. He will now spend the rest of his life making beautiful babies.

Yes he will! What a way to retire to pasture 😁. I sat straight up in my recliner with my legs dangling down. You'd have thought I was spurring that horse on by the way my feet were going! My bunny got tickled. Lol My pawpaw loved watching the races but never rode one. My dad had several on the farm and I loved riding them when I was younger. My dad was partial to Tennessee Walker's. Anyway, watching it she was uplifting! 🐴🙏🌼

Oops love to watch the races . I hate that I missed it I bet it was exciting to watch. Flappsy I'm glad you had such a good time watching it.

That's awesome! He's such a beautiful horse too! His sire fee is going to be high, and his offspring worth a lot. I wish I had been able to see it.

It wasn't the most exciting race I've ever seen because, as Always said, all the horses pretty much stayed in the same position they started in. But I was rooting for him anyway so my eyes were on him. Lol. He really is going to have $$$$ rolling in!

From what I heard, they paid $300,000.00 for him. (Now, I know the training, vet care, special diets and shoes these horses get but NO horse is worth that kind of money). Now he will be insured for a couple million and his babies will probably sell of $800k or more). The only problem I have with horse racing is that horses grow until they are 5 years old. These horses are started at 2 years old and even though they build muscle and lung strength, their bones, growth plates and tendons and ligaments are NOT ready. This is why you see a lot of horses breaking down on the track and having to be destroyed. It's very sad... I'm glad American Pharoe will live the rest of his life chilling out and making babies--

So am I, I love watching them race it's a shame that they start them so young.

Around here (SoCal), horses can go for a couple million. :P

Those horses undergo a lot of stress. Alwayz is right about them growing--it's tough on their bodies. When I was young, some of the barns I was at got horses off the track occasionally. Those horses are on massive amounts of drugs. The steroids they are on--it takes a long time (6mo to a year) to get off them, then the horse "sheds" muscle and basically has to be rebuilt and retrained.

Wow, I didn't know that Starrynight. I love horses because my dad had them for leisure rides on our farm.
