No. Not today.
California Chrome isn't good enough. He's a mediocre at best horse. I expect several horses to blow him out down the stretch...
I think Tonalist wins today.
I cannot be happier with this result. I've never been a fan of California Chrome... and no... I don't give a damn about his story. I care about horses and how they damned run... not about some stupid sap story or a tale of the little guy stickin' it to the man. Save it for the women.
At the derby he was being run down. At the preakness he was being run down. Any fool should know the horses that were running him down, with more track available, would beat him. Plus... at the Derby and the Preakness California Chrome had near perfect runs. He faced no adversity what-so-ever.
That wasn't going to happen three times in a row.
