Me - The Triple Crown, wow! Most of the year, I don't watch horse racing. I only watch the three races in the Triple Crown. I don't even always watch the Kentucky Derby including this year I didn't watch it. It is not interesting to me until the second race when I know what horse to root for. This year, I watched the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes. They were really cool! It was exciting that a horse finally won the triple crown again. The last time there was a triple crown winner, my mom was the age I am now. The only other horse that I know which won the Triple Crown was Secretariat and that was because I saw the movie, Secretariat. I am really glad I actually got to see a horse win the Triple Crown this time even if I only saw it on TV.
