triple crown race *free printables*

It's geek confession time.

I absolutely adore horses. Growing up I actually competed in various equine events until age 20ish. Now that I'm a city girl, it's been 5+ years since even a trail ride. Some days I sorely miss spending time with a 1200lb pet. But enough background info on why this post makes me giddy.

Some may not know that this Saturday is the Belmont Stakes. While this could be just another horse race, it could also be the most exciting moment in the horse world since 1978. BECAUSE we could watch a horse (I'll Have Another) win the Triple Crown, being the first in over 30 years! The Triple Crown is given to a horse that wins three specific races, only in 11 history have won while 21 have come close with 2 out of 3.

So I'm having a party! Above are wands I made for each of the race contenders.

Below is a betting card with the name and odds of each horse, and then a token with racings emblems. I plan to put these in a bowl and have guests each draw a horse to cheer on with their wand! If we're feeling brazen, we may all put in $1 with the pot going to the winner.

Should you want to HAVE YOUR OWN PARTY, fear not. You may download the party invitation + circle icons here, and the betting card + tokens here. I hope you do! AND if you want to email an invite (since this is short notice) you can select the graphic below and then paste it into an email. Super easy.

Anyone else plan to wear purple and cheer on I'll Have Another?!
