When you find 1 good reason to celebrate a person and/or a possible historic event, you often find another. I was so ecstatic to learn of Kevin Krigger’s run for history and now I’m overjoyed to learn of Rosie’s quest to be the first woman to win the Kentucky Derby on her colt, Mylute!
As an African-American woman, I am not sure I can ask for more. I feel as if “my kind” are being represented in one of the world’s most prestigious horse races and have no doubt that they will represent “me” well. Just competing is already enough…although I’m already sending positive energy to them for top finishes in tomorrow’s race! Cheers to the both of you!!!!!
And let us in no way forget the majestic partners who are vying for history for their own reasons as they are born competitors!
Wishing every single horse and rider competing tomorrow and every day afterwards safe journeys!
