Horse racing headlines from across the country and around the world

Sunday Morning Front Page Montage

A sampling of front pages from across the country on Sunday, May 18, 2008 -- the day after the Preakness


Two weeks ago the furor surrounding Eight Belles unfortunate fatality in the Kentucky Derby had some sounding the death-knell for horse-racing.

That attitude seems to have been proven premature however after looking at the front pages of many American newspapers on Sunday.

Big Brown's Preakness victory and the potential for a Triple Crown was featured on the cover of newspapers across the nation -- very often in the coveted "above the fold" position.

Think about this for a moment: What other American sports event garners similar coast-to-coast front page coverage? The Super Bowl is a likely candidate. Perhaps the last game of the World Series. Maybe the final game of the NBA Championship. Probably not the NHL. Or the PGA. Or professional tennis.

No -- it's horse-racing that's among this small handful of noteworthy events, despite some recent proclamations that it's an anachronism on the American sports scene...

Below is a sampling of some the front pages of US newspapers from this past Sunday.
