There has not been a triple crown winner in American horse racing since 1978, when Affirmed accomplished the feat. Triple crown horses belong to a very select club.
This Saturday, California Chrome, America’s new favorite racehorse, could enter that club with one more good trip down the track in New York. I, for one, am rooting for him and for his owners, DAP, which stands for “Dumb Ass Partners”. (Really, horse racing needs this shot in the arm.)
Go, Chrome, go!
