Some of you may know this and some of you may not, but the Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 4, 2013. It's the first race in the elusive Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing here in the United States. It is followed by the Preakness Stakes and then the Belmont Stakes. It has been suggested that winning these three races is the greatest accomplishment of a Thoroughbred racehorse. Another bit of trivia, it has been 35 years since there has been a Triple Crown winner. Affirmed was the name of the horse that last won the Triple Crown in 1978.
For your card or project today, let's uses horses. For those of you who have played along before...I'm pretty easy, no challenge police here. Just make sure you sell me in your description. I have attached samples from Sabrina and myself.

I knew I didn't have any realistic horses like your wonderful image, Toni - but I'm glad I had a lightbulb moment late yesterday and remembered my little Sheltie.
I once had a job in the UK in a house which had once been a stud farm with some race-horses too. They still had some most beautiful horses in the fields, and the owner was able to tell me stories of bringing horses over to the big races here in Ireland.
Clever, timely challenge, Toni. I had to put on my thinking cap and come at your challenge from a different angle since I don't own any horse stamps/die cuts/ etc.......maybe if I were in the "horsey set", I would.
