California Chrome is emerging as one of the most spectacular race horses of the era. Chrome was the winner of the 2014 Preakness reported Sporting News on May 17, 2014. This is the 34th time a horse has won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness.
Chrome's next goal is to win the Belmont Stakes which is planned to be run in three weeks in New York. Jockey Victor Espinoza said the Preakness was a crazy race. He also said that he was more tired mentally than physically from the race. Espinoza says the race was very demanding on his brains. Chrome came in to pay $3 to win and place and $2.40 to show.
There has not been a horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978. Ever since than twelve horses have won the Derby and Preakness but none of these horses has won the demanding Belmont. On June 7 Chrome will race at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Trainer Art Sherman has said so far everything has gone perfect.
California Chrome easily won the 139th Preakness Stakes reports Fox News. Chrome was spectacular in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. The hardest challenge now is to also try to win the Belmont Stakes in three weeks. Sherman says you have to have a really good horse to win these three races and he's hoping he's got one now. This kind of success story is generating all kinds of high emotions around California Chrome.
