SO JEALOUSSSS. Monmouth is only about an hour from where I live, but I had to go out to Illinois for work stuff sooooob. I'm hoping like hell he comes to Belmont for the Jockey Gold Cup, because otherwise I don't think I will see this sexy beast in person, if they are for sure retiring him at the end of the year. I was actually impressed with Keen Ice too! He closed really well and seems like he's on the upswing.
I wonder why they changed his shadow roll to black tho. I noticed that in the post parade and was like whaaat is this haha.
ALSO did you see Rachel's filly race earlier at the Spa?? Idk if you were there to see the simulcast at the track.
DUDEEE! I wish I'd known you were there!!!! I was at the Haskell, too, and totally would've loved to meet up for a bit! Your picture is way better than any of mine (I just had my cell phone and took pics from the paddock), but I DID get some brilliant pictures of this hilarious post-race incident:
This is a filly named Thinking of Mom.... She raced in the race following the Haskell. She is also NOT American Pharoah, contrary to what was apparently popular belief. I was having uncontrollable giggle fits the entire time I was taking these pictures, because her groom was just kinda going along with it and never said anything. xD
Oh, and this is probably my favorite shot I got of Pharoah. He has a friggin' police guard, but he's just chill as can be.
And I'd LOVE this one if there weren't so many people in it, but I also think that makes it kinda cool haha
