I'm sure Curlin will win 2007 Horse of the Year, and he deserves it, but it occurred to me this evening that special kudos should go to Rags to Riches. She's the filly who beat Curlin in the Belmont Stakes, the last leg of the Triple Crown. Only two fillies have ever won the Belmont, the last having won in 1905. And, Rags to Riches stumbled at the start and had to recover, well behind.
Look at that stride! Gotta love a lady with long legs.
