Big Brown Wins 2008 Preakness
Big Brown May Finally Be The Triple Crown Horse We've Been Waiting For
Like most people, I'm not any kind of huge horse racing fan, but I always watch the three legs of the Triple Crown, even when no horse has a shot at winning it.
But luckily, this year, the Triple Crown is not only a very real possibility, it almost seems inevitable at this point.
Big Brown blew away the competition today at the Preakness with such a dominant run that he almost seemed to breathe new life into the sport in the process. The stunning thing was that Big Brown won by 5 1/4 lengths (even though it seem like much more than that) and wasn't whipped once. I may not know a lot about horse racing, but that, my friends, is impressive.
For the first time since Smarty Jones lost the Triple Crown by a nose, I'm actually excited about horse racing. I can't wait for the Belmont Stakes. I think we're finally going to see another horse win the Triple Crown. Big Brown is the real deal.
