  • Will California Chrome win the triple crown?

    This horse just took the 2nd step towards the triple crown by winning the Preakness today. Won the Kentucky Derby obviously already. Up next, the Belmont. It's a longer race and this is where many horses that have won the first 2 fall short. There have only been 11 triple crown winners ever and only 24 horses in the last 114 years have won the first 2, only to come up short. The last triple crown winner was in 1978 (36 years ago).

    Alot of people are calling this 'America's Horse' because the owners breeding fees were so low.

    It would be great for this horse to accomplish this feat, showing that it doesn't always take big bucks to achieve a dream and be the best.

    Better question: will I care?

    answer: no

      I'm gonna say no. I loved to see it be otherwise, but that Belmont stretch seems to have humbled every two timer lately.

      Good luck Chrome!

            The correct answer is: who really gives a shiat?

              A lot of people feel that way about the NFL and the AMA

                I'd like to see it since there has never been one in my lifetime. I am going to say no though as there are horses that have no chance in Churchill and Preakness that can win the Belmont with the extra 1/4 mile. Other horses such as Danza took this weekend off to prep for Belmont.

                  That's a really cool story. Tell me more about it on a forum dedicated to an NFL team.

                    Point is there are people that do not care about horse racing, NFL and AMA just not everyone. So the answer to your question "Who gives a shiit?" is a lot of people do.

                      New York racing rules might not allow CA Chrome to wear his nasal strip as he has been too.

                            Someone **** in their Cheerios this morning. I'd love to see it happpen. Unfortunately, the Belmont seems to end the triple crown dreams.

                              I hope California Chrome wins the Belmont. Having a chance to win the Triple Crown gets casual horse racing fans (like me) interested.

                              I remember in my teen years many experts said that there probably would never be another Triple Crown winner because of the length of the Belmont (Citation had won it in 1948, before my time). Then Secretariat came along and the long drought was finally broken. Two more Triple Crown winners followed in the next few years (Seattle Slew and Affirmed).
