Today’s question: The Houston franchise joined the Major Leagues in 1962 as did the New York Mets. What was the Houston team called?
Yesterday’s question and answer: Affirmed won the triple crown in 1978, beating the same horse in each of the three races. Which horse came in second each race? The answer is Alydar: Alydar won two out of six races against Affirmed when they were 2 year olds. Alydar would make a better sire than Affirmed. Alydar would sire Kentucky Derby winners Alysheba (1987) and Strike the Gold (1991). Affirmed’s offspring prefered turf races like Eclipse winner Flawlessly.
