I'd like to agree with you, Thomas, after hearing the story of the little girl (Alex) who died from cancer and after whom the horse was named. My heart says "Afleet Alex", but my gut tells me it will be Mr. Steinbrenner's "Bellamy Road".
Both of them are Florida-bred horses, which is somewhat unusual in itself. Those breeders in the Ocala area must be standing proud right about now. Maybe Bellamy Road is due for a fall. Yet after the way he ran at the Wood Memorial, I'll just have to go with him. But I say to AA, who was actually nursed from a sterilized Coors Light bottle, "Go get 'em Alex"!
I haven't made my choice yet, but I live in Kentucky so I have my Kentucky Derby #131 glass ready.........but I may put a Margarita in the glass, I don't care for Mint Juleps. Actually wish I was on a cruise enjoying one of Celebrity's delicious pina colada's!
