Nothing brings attention to the sport of horse racing like the possibility of a Triple Crown winner. There hasn't been one since 1978.
With American Pharoah preparing to race for the Triple Crown on June 6 in the Belmont Stakes, we asked Teresa Genaro to tell us about how she balances her love of horse racing — a sport where the stars are sometimes mistreated — with her love of animals. Genaro is a freelance horse racing writer and publisher of the blog BrooklynBackstretch. She’s also a high school English teacher at Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
