Big Brown, winner of the first two legs of the Triple Crown has suffered a cracked hoof. Friday, after exercising, trainers discovered a three-quarter inch crack on the inside of his left food. The crack was stitched with stainless steel wire on Monday and the colt was exercising on the track today. Trainers feel that the colt will not be affected by the crack and still plan to run him in the Belmont Stakes on June 7th.
I'm beginning to realize that growing older can be fun if you just have the right attitude. My Perfect Martini reminded me that there are even more fun games that we can play.
