    Not sure if anyone here is into horse racing, but this is an interesting story..

    California Chrome wins Preakness; one victory from Triple Crown*-*Los Angeles Times

    California Chrome was born in California, and bred out of the mare Love The Chase. Love the Chase was purchased by Steve Coburn and Perry Martin for$8,000. She was bred to Lucky Pulpit for about $2,500.
    Now, California Chrome has won both the Derby and the Preakness, can he last the Belmont, the longest of the three races? Do you think California Chrome could be the first horse in 36 years to win the Triple Crown?
