Rags to Riches: Great Filly!

I did bet her across the board. She went off at 4-1. I got $18 on the bet and wished I'd put more down on her. Way to go, Rags to Riches!

A filly hasn't won the Belmont Stakes in 102 years. (Read that again.)

And Todd Pletcher, a phenomenal trainer, has never been able to hit a winner in a Triple Crown race. It's perfect that he did so with a filly in an "impossible" race.

I'm still gloating. Virtually every handicapper laughed at me when I said Rags to Riches had enough of a chance for me to bet her as I did.
