Preakness Part Deux: Curlin

Mom is friends with one of Curlin's owners. Tonight she tells me the story behind the name of this years Preakness winner and Triple Crown upset.

Curlin was the name of Mom's friend's grandfather, who was sold on the block as a slave. The farm Curlin the Thoroughbred races out of is the same farm where Curlin the grandfather was sold, since purchased by the grandson.

Wow. That brings a whole new dimension to his--THEIR--victory.
