Monday Musings

It's been a busy summer so far and it's only the first week in June!  There's a lot on the calendar.... Here's what's cooking......

1) The Belmont
Saturday at the Belmont is the place to be. Love this article in the New York Times about the Garden State Hotel.  Would love to have their drink list of this year's entries - so cleaver.  My money is on Tacitus to win and War of Will to place but would love to see WOW win again.

2) Metropolitan Mile
However, the better race IMHO will be the talent-packed Met Mile so get there a little early and watch this one for sure.  Some of the names in this year's sprint for 4-year-olds and up will sound familiar:

Firenze Fire (on last year's Derby trail), Thunder Snow (winner of the Dubai World Cup), McKinzie (a Baffert-trained colt that missed the TC last year due to injury), Coal Front, and Promises Fulfilled.  Some very good horses have won this race:  Frosted,  Palace Malice, Shackleford, Quality Road, Tizway, and Ghostzapper.

This is Frosted who won the race in 2015. We saw him at Darley last year.

2) Alfie Love
Alfie has been pulled out of moth balls, clipped a few times, and kicked backed into first gear.  He showed in March (after not jumping a jump since October) and pulled three 2nds to win Reserve Champion.  Two weeks ago we pulled him out again where he won the tricolor. We ventured over the mountain on Saturday to support the Farmington Hunt and he won again, this time two 1sts and a 2nd to win his third tricolor of the year. Love my 18-year-old-boy. He's the real deal and I love that he's giving me 85 percent!  (not kidding).

3) Birkenstock Love
Love these Birkenstocks!

5) Vintage Lilly Love
I have taken several older Lilly skirts, bought from Poshmark for $8 and $21 respectively and am loving them.  The classics never get old.  Here are few to pick from and who does not love a bargain!
