Phyllis Wyeth had a dream her horse, Union Rags, would win the Belmont Stakes, one that he fulfilled Saturday evening.
When I'll Have Another retreated from the winner's circle Saturday afternoon, a retired champion, he left the spotlight for another horse later in the evening.
With an opportunity gone in the Kentucky Derby, Saturday's Preakness Stakes was another chance for Bodemeister to prove he could be one of the all-time greats. All he had to do, trainer Bob Baffert said, was run "his race."
'Well, if we can get on Union Rags, it would be perfect.'
I think that would be the horse of the future," he said Saturday. "We've been being looking for a long time if the opportunity would come up for me to ride the horse, I guess it worked out good for me today."
