Was not even born when Affirmed won it in 1978, this is probably the most difficult thing to win in all of sports. Yeah yeah its not a person athlete so its not quite the same but there are jockeys, trainers, all sorts of staff involved just like "regular" sports and the amount of money involved is mind blowing.
This is something we may not see again for another 20-30 years so its kinda cool to actually be able to watch it as it happens. They are also now talking about potentially calling it a "Grand Slam" if he wins the Breeders Cup in the fall as well.
I'm really hoping he'll be at Monmouth Park for the Haskell Invitational in August, if he is I'm going, that racetrack is like 30 minutes from me.
