Off to the Ranch
Grab your mint julep, your brightest and biggest summer hat, and head off to the races. If you’re a fan of the equestrian lifestyle, May and June are the months you look forward to all year. It’s the start of the Triple Crown season, which includes the Kentucky Derby held at Churchill Downs on May 7; the Preakness Stakes, held at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore on May 21; and the Belmont Stakes, held in Belmont Park on Long Island, New York, on June 11. And with all the excitement last year with the Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, this year is sure to be more anticipated than ever before. After all, American Pharoah is only the 12th Triple Crown winner in the history of the races.
