At the Races

June 11, 2012

Here are my mother-in-law, M, and my sister-in-law, C, watching the Belmont Stakes.  M was quite disappointed that the horse I’ll Have Another was retired at the last minute because of injuries (she claims the Mafia was involved), but moved on to support the remaining headliners.  By the time the race was over, M had given us the lowdown on how much the horses cost, what their racing odds were, and the names of their jockeys.  She is a wealth of information… and it’s not just the races.  H and I have discovered that his mom is well-informed on many of the great sporting events, including the European and World Cups in soccer, Wimbledon Championships, Olympic contenders, and one of her favorites (coming soon), the Tour de France.  Who knew?
