Belmont and Preakness Stakes rescheduled

Hey y’all! As you can see in the title both the Belmont and the Preakness Stakes have been moved to a different date. The three jewels to the crown have now been scrambled up, making the Belmont Stakes for the first time ever, the first to be run, which is originally the last leg to the Triple crown. It will be held on the twentieth of this month instead of the sixth of this month. There will be no spectators in the stands, so the race will be much quieter then usual, and instead of the usual mile and a half, it will be shortened to a mile and one eighth. The Kentucky Derby will be held next on the fifth of September making it the third time in history to not be held in May. Then the Preakness will be the last jewel instead of the second, and will be held on the third of October, instead of the sixteenth of last month. The Kentucky Derby will be held at the Churchill Downs race track in Louisville Kentucky, the Preakness will be held at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore Maryland, and the Belmont will be held at the  Belmont Park in Elmont New York. The NBC will be streaming each race live. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for upcoming posts!

Oh, and this is due to the Covid 19 I almost forgot to add that.

Well not really, the three races (Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes) make up what we call the “Triple Crown” so each race is called a “jewel” if one horse wins all three, that means they have won the Triple Crown.

You’ve watched Secretariat!? Did you like it? No they do race with saddles, but they are pretty small compared to western saddles. Have you ever ridden bare back?

I’ve watched the movie too, I thought it was pretty neat! It’s crazy how good he was! Yes I’ve ridden bare back, it’s actually not that bad! Do you use Western saddles or English?
