The list of Triple Crown nominees came out today. Sure, everyone is talking about obvious types like Mohaymen and Nyquist and Greenpointcrusader — but what about the ones connected to Illinois?
Over at Picks and Ponderings, I took a look at the horses with local connections who have been nominated to the Triple Crown. The focus rests on horses who raced here or were bred here, as well as a pair of locally connected owners who figure quite prominently on the list.
Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, and find out how the road to the Triple Crown just might head through the state of Illinois!
