Congratulations to fellow Northern Californian, California Chrome for being the first California bred horse to win the Kentucky Derby since 1962! Can you believe it? What a race – my heart was racing, I might have hyperventilated a few times, and my dogs may have gone a little crazy listening to me scream in excitement as California Chrome took the lead.
Congrats to jockey Victor Espinoza, owners Steve Coburn (Happy birthday…what an amazing birthday present), Perry Martin and to California Chrome’s trainer Art Sherman on winning the 140th Kentucky Derby. I don’t mean to get ahead of myself, but this horse could go all the way and win the Triple Crown. Don’t count him out! Happy Derby Day and congrats again to my California boy!!!
