The Kentucky Derby is among the world’s toughest races to win but California Chrome made it look easy. After his convincing win at Churchill, California Chrome will be a worthy and overwhelming favorite in the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday. He is one of only three colts exiting the Derby expected to run in the Preakness. The so-called “new shooters” — those that didn’t make the cut for the Kentucky Derby but will enter the Preakness — includes a mixed-bag of 3-year-old colts and one filly who will take on the “boys.”
With all the expensive horse flesh being trucked into town for the Preakness and all the other big time races, there will be some other working horses at the track.
A filly is going to challenge the boys in the Preakness for the first time since 2009 when Rachel Alexandra won.
