California Chrome

So ill start by saying I WAS WRONG! I didnt think Chrome would be competitive in the world cup and wow was I way off. Not only did he win, he turned in one of the more impressive world cup performances in recent history, all while his saddle was slipping down towards his hind end! So once again I was wrong! He raced 3 or 4 wide on both turns (which is his prefered running style) and when Victor asked the question, he exploded down the lane. Hopertunity ran his usual race and got up for third for a nice 1million dollar payday. Msawish faed down the lane and my choice Frosted kind of ran an even race to get 5th. Make you sad to think that Chrome and Pharoah never got to face eachother. Last years Classic could have had Chrome, Pharoah, and Shared Belief which would have been an amazing race. Lets hope he makes it healthy all year and his owner doesnt ruin him somehow. Congrats also to Art Sherman who did a wonderful job starting from scratch with him and having him ready to peak Saturday night.
