At least one horse had fun running the Preakness

[ Edited ]

Bodexpress lost his rider out of the gate and ran with his friends. It made me smile. πŸ™‚

@esme I was smiling and cheering for hm! He did look like he was just running for fun. And none of the out riders could get to him so when the race was over (he didn't know that!), he just kept running!

I was wondering what they'd do if he came in first.  I was rooting for him.

Even though I swore I would not watch due to the fact there will be no triple crown winner; I did watch...you cannot make that up...the horse had a large time!  Can you imagine if that horse would have won?!?!

I always laugh and hold my breath at the same time when this happens. It can be pretty dangerous. I was at the races one day when one did this before the start. He had the best time running around. Everyone was cheering for him.

 

So glad War of Will won but I lost my exacta by a nose so I'm a bit bummed about that!

it definitely would have been FUN to see bodeexpress win, but if he had, it would not have counted.

I forgot about the race too but watched a video of the race. How funny. I needed a good laugh today. Thanks for the reminder.
