People please shut up about Secretariat, he was a freak of nature and you
wont see another horse like that in a 100 years even if they had his
bloodline and exact training methods.

Antonio Moya says:

People talk too much… I hate to be realistic; but CC won using 2:03.66
for distance. The 67th best!? time in Derby. Untapable did better than
Rachel Alexander in the Oaks, Is CC a genuine Triple Crown option!? To be
on the same list with Secretariat, Affirmed, Seatle Slew, Citation,
Wirdlaway etc.. you need to really be good. So far I see a horse
competing with mediocre prospects, another Big Brown, another Orb. The only
one with that potential, after his last track-record, is Social Inclusion;
but didn’t compete and now is not healthy. That is sad. We want a hero;
but we deserve a better. What about Spectacular Bid? Those years…

Walked into OTB and didn’t even bet, I just wanted to see CC win this race
and continue on to the Crown. Coming up to the Derby I saw that this horse
was the only prospect for a Triple Crown and I just routed for him to win
on that account. My favorite Derby ever!

Thanks for the upload!! Great to be able to go back and “listen” to the
post race interviews! Great, great story! It was great to see Shug win the
Derby last year…and now to see Art win this year. Nice to see the little
guy (no pun intended) win the big race!!

Well, WHATEVER. I’m looking forward to a really good Triple Crown this
year. WHOEVER wins. I’ll leave the opinions and analysis to TVG with their
roundtable discussions. and, i’ll leave it there.

margaret brown says:

California Chrome is a descendant of Secretariat. He ran like Secretariat.

Jonathan Goicoechea says:

Chrome is not a freak, he had a perfect trip in the derby and this years
crop of 3 year olds is one of the weakest in years. Who did he beat while
racing in california??? NO ONE!!!!!!! Sure he bested the rest on the derby
day, I take nothing away from him. He ran the best race. He will tear the
horrible field apart in Maryland. But like I said earlier he has not shown
me enough to make me a believer that he will win his 3rd race in 5 weeks
going a mile and a half. He will caught like others before him mid stretch
on June 7th. Mark it down!!!!!!!

earp61able says:

How about Frankel. Now that horse was a freak. 

Scott Kelley says:

He coulda won by more, he was geared down once again, lol!….Us
Californians know what we have in Chrome and that’s a true Champion race
horse who could win the Derby and go on to possibly win the Triple Crown. I
knew he would win the Derby, his speed figures towered over all of his
rivals. He’ll win the Preakness too then go on to The Belmont and hopefully
ration his speed and extra 1/4 mile which should be no problem. GO
CALIFORNIA CHROME!!!!!!

Pariss Hardy says:

Best race was Secretariat winning Preakness Stakes 1973 hands down. Can’t
beat it. And the rest is history.

Bekka Sawyer says:

He was so awesome! what a race for him! I knew he would win months
ago…triple crown!!!!

Ogizzle Trappin says:

he cannot win the Belmont, what a disappointment. Yes he is cute but sea
biscuit is dead! This colt will be eaten at a mile and a half. People in
California should stick to making wine a smoking pot, great horses come
from somewhere else

gary moore says:

We haven’t even seen Victor really ask California Chrome for his best yet,
he geared him down the last 70 yards WOW!! GO CHROME AND DUMB ASS
PARTNERS!!

RowdyUpInHere says:

hell yeah. california chrome, represent!

boris michalovich says:

If California Chrome shows up to race in Baltimore, the real race in the
Preakness Stakes will be for 2nd place. none of those horses are as good as
he is…GO CHROME!!

Silvia C says:

What a great Birthday gift!! He is such a gift!!

Ronaldo Magalhaes says:

Eu quero ver mulher pelada.l

Alina Reybey says:

Awesome race good job to all horses and cc won I’m so excited

Rickey Beam says:

This horse looks good, he was not asked for all his effort to win.

Tairaterces says:

Thanks Horse Racing ;)

Scott Johnston says:

I was there and rooting for California Chrome. What a Cinderella story.

Pariss Hardy says:

I look forward to California Chrome winning the triple crown not as
dramatically as Secretariat did. However I consider Secretariat a superior
horse over California Chrome. But I hope CC proves me wrong! I’m looking
forward to that!

Silvia C says:

It is time for that Triple Crown!! Take it home C.C. 

anhell32 says:

Ride on curlin my pick for the preakness had so much traffic problems and
finish only 6 lenghs from the winner

margaret brown says:

WHOA!! NOW, WAIT A MINUTE!!! I like finding out about a horse’s pedigree
abd bloodlines.. nor was i trying to insult these 2 wonderful ponies. on a
side note, my hero is my father. that’s it and that’s all. with that being
said, i’m looking forward to the Preakness and Belmont Stakes.
