Drawing on Turning for Home Day

Read the Philadelphia Inquirer article “After 10 Years, Memories of Afleet Alex Abound“:

[Afleet Alex’s] place in horse racing lore was established at that year’s Preakness. After another horse veered into his path, their heels clipped, and Afleet Alex dropped almost to his knees, his nose inches from the dirt, his jockey, Jeremy Rose, barely hanging on. It was a feat of athleticism for both horse and jockey. Instead of going down, Afleet Alex regained his footing and roared off to a 43/4-length victory. “He did something champions do,” Rose said after the race.

“I’ve seen horses take bad steps in races and win,” said Ritchey, the trainer. “I never saw horses stumble that much and come back on and win in a Grade I race like this. That’s the first I’ve ever seen it.” from : https://www.alexslemonade.org/afleet-alex-10-years-later

In honor of Afleet Alex’s Preakness win and legacy, TFH will be hosting Alex’s Lemonade Stand on TFH Day, June 22, 2021
