ELMONT, NY (PIX11) — PIX11 met up with California Chrome on Monday morning, the thoroughbred that on Saturday could become the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.
This world-famous horse has been taking east before ore the race to avoid any injuries. This morning, he went for a quick trot and enjoyed a nice bath.
California Chrome cleaned up at the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, and is the favorite to win the Triple Crown at Belmont this weekend. The last Triple Crown winner was Affirmed, in 1978.
