    Default Backyard Calbred takes Kentucky's best

    5th straight win for a California horse (Cal bred- registered) today as " California Chrome" takes the derby win as the favorite. For a 13,000 dollar horse he is looking good to win a few more. Cal bred, for those who don't know, is for California horses so they can race against "just" other Ca. horses in this state. This is the first time a Cal-bred has won the Derby although other California horses have. D. Wayne Lukas had a few. He started with Cal bred in Quarter horse racing here in So Cal.

    I had a fleeting moment in my history with a Cal Bred from my backyard. He only had 3 races on him when the economy took a dump and I had to get off the track faster than he ran. I shard the dream with DAP stables (Dumb Assed Partners) today though. There is nothing like being in the paddock before a race.

    Here's my boy Jetson on a breeze out at Los Alamitos. I rode his Mom for 13 years who died 1 year after he came off the track in a freak trailer incident.
    He became my daily driver after that. I never let him forget I could pick him up and carry him back to his stall. I had him fooled :<0)

    Yes, I enjoyed watching the race today. I just hope Mr. Chrome has the ability to go the longer distances with that speed.

    With that lead it would suggest he loves being in front at the end and he had plenty left. Jockey kept the dirt out of his face too which is more important with this horse than anything else I bet. He can save it for the end if the pace stays slow enough for 3/4s. The other trainers saw that today so they will be trying to take that advantage away next time. The thing is a faster pace won't help most of the horses I saw run today. They all got what they needed and wanted they just got beat is all.
