The Test of Champions!

The Annual Run for the Carnations is happening Saturday, June 9th and Franklin & Company Tavern will start live coverage at 11AM. This race promises to be exciting. All eyes are on I'll Have Another attempting to become the 12th horse to sweep the Triple Crown when he competes in the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont StakesSince 1919, when Sir Barton became the first to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont, only 11 horses have managed to sweep all three races, most recently in 1978 when Affirmed beat arch rival Alydar by a head in the “Test of the Champion.”  but the smart bet might be to watch Union Rags and Alpha who sat out the Preakness and are hitting the track fresh. I'll Have Another might not be able to handle that last drink. But you should come on down and have a Belmont Breeze. The official drink of the Belmont Stakes. Created by New York's premiere beverage authority Dale DeGroff, the profile of the Belmont Breeze comes from the colonial recipe: one of sour, two of sweet, three of strong and four of weak. Chef Jared Combs  will also be cooking up some of his great Saturday BBQ!
