Parental Writes #4 – Playing the Horses!Paul Reyburn
AND WE’RE OFF!!
For the last few years, Duncan has been borderline obsessed with the Triple Crown in horse racing. This year, he’s been looking up videos of past races and now he could tell you the Kentucky Derby winners for the past 10 or so years. Naturally, he’s super pumped about the Belmont Stakes this year and the chances of California Chrome to win the first Triple Crown in 36 years!
I have to admit, I’m pretty psyched as well. I started watching the Triple Crown races back when Secretariat was setting records (that are still standing!).
This year, Duncan has done pretty well at picking winners – in fact, he picked the trifecta in the Preakness (1st, 2nd & 3rd place in order).
Perhaps it’s time to take him out to Canterbury Park to see some live racing. Maybe I’ll bring a few bucks along and see how he does… 🙂
Although, given my luck with gambling, perhaps I should stick to something more “low stakes”…
