Win a Book!
Here is your chance to win a copy of the new book "Three Strides Before
the Wire" by Elizabeth Mitchell (read review) courtesy of Hyperion Books.
This is an excellent book telling the story of Charismatic's run for the
Triple Crown.  Four copies will be given away so enter now!


Book Review:  Three Strides Before the Wire
"The Dark and Beautiful World of Horse Racing" by Elizabeth Mitchell. An
excellent book about Charismatic's run for the Triple Crown and his
troubled jockey Chris Antley.

War Emblem works out
He had his first serious work since the Preakness and breezed 5 furlongs
effortlessly in 1:00 3/5, galloping out 6 furlongs in 1:13 3/5.  Lots of
pictures from photographer Tina Hines.

2002 Belmont Contenders
The final field is starting to take shape for the Belmont now. Get the
latest list of probables with links to info on each.

The legendary Secretariat finally has his own official website with history, photos, and more. Merchandise will be offered with proceeds helping to benefit racing charities. Get all the details here!

Patchen Beauty and Baby
Photos of the rare white thoroughbred and her new white colt born in
April from photographer Tina Hines.


Early Belmont Analysis
XTERMINAL writes, "War Emblem becomes Baffert's third shot at the Triple
Crown in six years, and unlike the last two he actually has a shot at
pulling it off. This is a horse who can on guts alone handle a 12f speed
duel and still be a bob of the head in front at the wire. Get ready to
see the best stretch run in the Belmont in years. War Emblem's Kentucky
Derby is one of only two pacelines that actually was at or over par at
all calls; that's the mark of one dangerous horse."

Anyone going to the Belmont?
CURVEDLINES writes, "You don't need a ticket. You get full access to the
apron and railside plus the paddock and back yard with general
admission. You can easily stake out an excellent spot to watch the race
and there are benches you can claim to have a place to sit. Works best
if you aren't alone so someone can always stay to keep your spot of
course." MARK10001 strongly advises to get there as early as possible to
save a spot, and adds "I hope history is made."
