Belmont, California Chrome, Doomed

So, I decided to do Alphabe-Thursday and then I missed B and C, oops.  We went to Las Vegas and I'm going to do B, C and D together.

Check out other Alphabe-Thursday's at Jenny's. http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2014/06/alphabe-thursday-letter-d.html

Saturday was the race at Belmont for a possible Triple Crown Winner. There hasn't been one for 36 years.

We got the above t-shirt for a $25 bet.  Hippie, son, girlfriend and I all bet on different horses.  I bet on California Chrome. 


I was pretty sure my choice was doomed from the beginning but I bet anyhow.  It would have been cool if he won.  Oh well...at least I got the t-shirt.

I was hoping he would too! "May the horse be with you" -- too funny!

Sorry he didn't win. At least you got the t-shirt. I enjoyed meeting you from the linky. I am following you now.
Have a great weekend,

I like that t shirt but I was sad California Chrome didn't win! I am glad you got the cool t shirt. I liked the fact that Chrome was owned by working class regular joes. I get tired of all these millionaires hogging all the spotlight but I think you have to be part of all three races to make it fair. I don't think a horse that did not participate in the other two big races should be able to skate in! Chrome won the top dog in horse racing so he is a champion in my book!

I'm glad you got a beautifully cute and delightful t-shirt.

Wow. How was that for using b,c,d words in order? ha!

We watched that race, too.

I actually yelled, but it didn't help.

Thanks for daring to catch up in one fell swoop for Alphabe-Thursday!
