Preakness Stakes Odds

Yes, it happened just like we said it would! First, California Chrome was ridden by Victor Espinoza with ease on a slow course at Churchill Downs to capture the 140th Kentucky Derby in a time of 2:03.66.

The, the connections California Chrome said the Preakness Stakes was in the bag. We believed them, too. Why? Because California Chrome wants an even shinier CROWN. The TRIPLE CROWN. California Chrome won the Preakness Stakes in a time of 1:54.84. Yes, that is FAST. So, will he be able to pull a repeat and win at the third and final jewel of the Triple Crown – The Belmont Stakes?

California Chrome will need to contend with Belmont. Say that: Belmont. It is the longest race any three year old colt will run in his life. But if there was a horse built for that kind of work, we think it is California Chrome. Yes, there are some hungry horses like Danza, Commanding Curve and who knows who else looking to be the spoiler But maybe this IS the year. Affirmed 1978. California Chrome 2014?
