Preakness next.... Go gal!

Actually the Preakness was two weeks ago. The Belmont is the third leg of the Triple Crown. (Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont)

It's reported that the thoroughbred's owner is considering racing her in the upcoming Breeders Cup though. That's an important event.

So as you said, "Go Girl!"

Yea, she won.

If a female wants to play with the boys, she should carry the same weight.

Every one carried 126 and the filly had 121.

Five lbs is a big advantage.

That's a valid point. It is handicapped into the equation though. Kind of like the ladies tees at the golf course.

Joe,

Just one more comment.

The Triple Crown and other Stake Races are not Handicapped Races.

In Stake Races horses are assigned to carry 126 lbs.

In Handicapped Races, the weights are THEORETICALLY assigned, so all horses cross the finish line at the same time.

I have never seen that happen, but that's the theory track handicappers use.
