Re: California Chrome

If you're on Facebook, Willie Delgado shared some photos this morning of Chrome leaving Los Al. They're kinda dark and blurry from his phone, but I guess he's probably at the farm now. https://www.facebook.com/william.delgado.77312/posts/1615767851982232 Thanks!

Re: Why doesn't NYRA open Belmont infield for Belmont Stakes

Re: California Chrome

Officially, there are 11 TC winners.

Unofficially, CC is the 12th TC winner .... in my book!

Cheers to CC .... and all his connections. :D

Steve Coburn is right. We'll never see another TC in our lifetime .... and I'm 12 years older than Steve Coburn.

Re: 2014 Belmont Stakes News & Notes

Dual classic winner California Chrome drew post position 2 and was installed the 3-5 morning-line favorite for his attempt at the coveted Triple Crown when he faces 10 other 3-year-olds in the June 7 Belmont Stakes (gr. I). Read more on BloodHorse.com: http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles...
