California Chrome Wins The Kentucky Derby

It was one horse, and the rest of the field, they said.

And this time, they got it right.

Because shortly after the field turned for home, one horse separated himself from that field, and crossed the wire alone – announcing to the world that though he’s not a blue-blood, he’s every bit as good.

That California Chrome will shine brightly tonight in Louisville as the 140th winner of the Kentucky Derby.

The morning-line favorite had significant questions coming into Saturday’s race, and answered them all quickly.  Jockey Victor Espinoza hustled the colt out of the gate and got him out of the trouble an inside post presents before backing him off and saving his energy.

Around the far turn, there was never a doubt.  California Chrome, as confident as you’d like, exploded away from the field and walked to the roses.  Bred at the rock-bottom price of less than $10,000, the pride of Dumb-Ass partners was the champion of America’s most prestigious race.
