Before there was the Kentucky Derby, before the Belmont or Preakness Stakes, or Off–Track Betting, there were…
Horse. And Toad.
Because the exacta is nothing compared to the Princess’ hand in marriage, right?
See you in Central Park tomorrow, 2nd June.
“Horse and Toad” is from the book The Magic Orange Tree and Other Haitian Folktales (Random House–Schocken Books, New York, 1978, reprinted 1997).
