I saw my first Belmont Stakes in 1972 when Riva Ridge prevailed by seven lengths. Nevertheless, congratulations to American Pharoah on winning the equestrian Triple Crown.

If it’s springtime in America, there are few places lovelier to be than Lexington, Kentucky. Queso lover, Auburn Tiger, Southern by nature, San Francisco by nurture.

At some point, virtually every ambitious executive asks this question. According to a recent global study a remarkable 87% of managers aspire to the corner office. This year is no different, the Millennials have taken American Pharoah as their own on his trip to win the Triple Crown.
