Affirmed, the most recent Triple Crown Winner in 1978

There is my boy, winning the Santa Anita Derby.  He only did what was necessary to win.  That was a great day.  He would sleep the morning of a race.  Boy he was crabby when we woke him up to go get ready!!! Days so very long ago, when I was so very young 🙂

May everyone racing today be safe.
