CALIFORNIA CHROME –Kentucky Derby (G1) winner California Chrome continued his preparation for a scheduled start in Saturday’s 139th running of the Preakness Stakes (G1) at Pimlico Race Course by galloping 1 ¾ miles over a “good” racetrack early Sunday morning at Churchill Downs.
“He loves it out there,” exercise rider Willie Delgado said. “Whatever he does, I just let him do. He is a rock star and I am just a groupie. He is the Kentucky Derby winner; he can do whatever he wants.”
