U.S. TRIPLE CROWN

Horseracing fans all over the world are gearing up for the three events on which so much is riding. Not since 1978 has there been a winner of the U.S. Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, which includes the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky on May 4; the Preakness Stakes at Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course on May 18; and the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York on June 8. A horse named I’ll Have Another won the first two competitions last year but was forced to drop out of the Belmont Stakes with a swollen tendon.

“It is relatively easy to be thankful for the most important and obvious parts of life…but truly happy people find ways to give thanks for the little, insignificant trifles…the smell of fall in the air, the fragment of a song that reminds you of when you were a kid. ”

-Social scientist and musician Arthur C. Brooks
