Special delivery by Big Brown ...

Horse race
Our family loves the special packages delivered by UPS year round and especially at the holidays. Only our dog, Pearl, takes a barking offense to what we think is the sound of the big brown truck.

This weekend, another special delivery came in the form of a horse racing victory.  Big Brown who is named after UPS, delivered a decisive victory at Pimlico in the 133rd running of The Preakness Stakes following a win at the Kentucky Derby earlier this month.

We really enjoyed watching this athletic, muscular horse take an early lead and blow the competition away by more than 5 lengths.  His jockey, Kent Desormeaux, said, “My whole job in that first half-mile was to keep his face clean.  There’s not a grain of sand on most of his body.”

Good luck at the Belmont Stakes!!! We’ll be watching and cheering you on to what we hope will be your next delivery … the 12th winner of the Triple Crown.  And best wishes.  According to our sources, following that race, Big Brown is retiring to start a family.
