Look Ahead

Horseracing is not my cup of tea except when it comes to the Triple Crown.Winning three races over a five week period is a phenomenal feat.Secretariat, one of the greatest race horses in American history completed the three-peat in what is considered the best performance in the twentieth century, winning the Belmont Stakes by 31 lengths.Something caught my eye in footage of the race. Each horse had a hood with plastic cups shading their eyes.These are called racing blinkers. According to Wikipedia, “many racehorse trainers believe the blinkers keep horses focused on what is in front, encouraging them to pay attention to the race rather than other distractions, such as crowds.
