‘California Chrome’ is trying to do what no horse has done since ‘Affirmed’ in 1978 and create history, by winning the Triple Crown, in the US.
California Chrome has been far too good for everyone else in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes and this final run in New York and the Belmont Stakes could create history and only the 12th ever Triple Crown winner.
However, I want to take you back to the Australian Cup in 2004 which is personally the greatest win I have ever seen, with the mighty mare Lonhro and Darren Beadman on board.
Lonhro was checked and boxed in and couldn’t win. But watch what Beadman does. He’s in pink. I’ve never seen a horse moved at right angles before, but it happens here.
Enjoy this flash back Friday horserace and good luck to California Chrome. I’ll be there and hope to witness history in the making!
