at approx. 6:45 pm EST, history just might be made in a wonderful way at Belmont Park, NY.

I really don't know how many of you are horse racing fans but I bet ya like a great Underdog story! And that's just exactly what ya get with California Chrome & his owners, trainer, and staff.
I have blogged about this before (about May 17th) and on June 7th Chrome will be racing in the final jewel of the triple crown. No horse, since 1978, has won all three and so far Chrome has won 2 of those races and I sure hope & pray he wins the final one.

As I have written before: His owners are known as the DAP (Dump Ass Partners) for spending so little on an unknown mare to breed to a cheap stud, which produced a champion. These 2 guys are NOT wealthy, the trainer is an older fellow (in his 80s), and Chrome just doesn't act like a high spirited race horse- He is just layed back & easy going (till he breaks from the gate that is).

So even if you could care less about horse racing but enjoy a wonderful Cinderella story, how about hoping this beautiful chestnut with a white blaze, wins the Belmont and makes history for all the little folks.

I sure can't think of a happier story, to hit the news, then this colt beating the pants off all those Kentucky bred horses & their deep pocket owners & trainers.

GO C.C.
