What a great story at the Derby - 05/04/14
Perhaps you watched the Kentucky Derby yesterday and saw California Chrome's impressive win. But do you know the backstory on this champion horse? Two California businessmen decide to get into the horse racing business and buy an unimpressive racing horse to breed a foal. They take their new horse and breed him to a stud for $2500 dollars. On their first try, they create a Derby champion. The odds are a million to one, but they've bucked them. Now, California Chrome will attempt to become the first horse to win all three of the legs of the Triple Crown in 36 years. I don't know about you, but I'll be watching every second.
