It was another amazing day of horse racing as over 150,000 fans attended the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby. The favorite to win the race was CALIFORNIA CHROME and he did not dissapoint, clearing the way for the Preakness Stakes. CALIFORNIA CHROME has now won five straight and will be looking for his sixth win at the Preakness Stakes on the third Saturday of May.
Just behind the winner of the Kentucky Derby was a 50-1 longshot COMMANDING CURVE, I guess we should have all picked out the double C's to take the top two spots in the Derby. And to finish up the top three in the 2014 Kentucky Derby was Pletcher's DANZA whose odds were 10-1.
