Whether American Pharoah won or lost, last Saturday’s Belmont Stakes was going to be one to remember.
Well, hello again. What’s it been, a year already? Hard to believe 12 months have slipped past since we last heard from you.

Sometimes those words are ramped up a notch to “great for racing.”

Conclusions cannot be made about the game when only looking at the winter months or looking at the nearly 300,000 fans that packed Churchill Downs for two days in May. But we’ll revisit that discussion another day.
