This afternoon we came in off of the water a little early to watch the third race to the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes. It was so exciting to watch for several reasons. We were able to take the kids to the Kentucky Derby this year and American Pharoah was in line to break the dry spell for the Triple Crown!

And there for the Triple Crown!

Wow! Look at that lead! 

Bob Baffert is one of my favorite trainers to follow. It was neat watching this race because EVERYONE was cheering for American Pharoah to win!

My tweet after the race...

#AmericanPharoah ONLY 12th horse to win the #TripleCrown @alnaifeh @abbynaifeh @OneyWnaifeh WE saw piece of history!

Im not real sure that the kids really "get it". Pretty cool that we were able to be a part of this history. This is one of those stories they will tell their kids and grandkids about!
