Rags to Riches

In case you missed's the winner of the Belmont Stakes with HER jockey. Rags to Riches is the first filly to win this race in over a century--since 1905, 102 years to be exact!

More pictures of the race!


  1. Well, its about time!

  2. Oh may God, this is a lot of years.

    I think this is an excellent way to show the race. The race "you" saw. Nice shot too.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise. It's me!

  6. "Ah, I'm so glad that you are promoting women's businesses and interests", wrote Kate a while back when I blogged Gloria et Odile......

  7. Your pink dino may be a Mademoiselle too, who knows?

  8. It is about time...what a beautiful horse! Baby girl and I went to see the Lipenzaner stallions last night. What a new camera is not here yet, the old camera is officially dead, and we had to content ourselves with the pictures we took in our minds.

  9. Girl power ;-)

  10. As you and others say, just about time!

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. Yes it was Paloma and also her younger brother. A nice day!

    Referreing to your airplane. I tried today to take a photo of one overflying Paris; a total failure. You will not find it on my blog.

  11. This was the most exciting race! Every time I look at Rags to Riches, I fall in love with her face.

  12. I love it -- the filly showing up the colts. I wonder how long before people have combined races as well? Hey, what about jockeys? How many of the jockeys are women? Wouldn't that make sense, being smaller and lighter on average?!

    Are you a rider Kate?


Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
