California Chrome is a nice horse, but it has the deck stacked against him

I'd love to see horse racing produce a triple crown this year.
But it won't happen.
Oh, I'll see the last two races, all right. I just won't see California Chrome win both of them.
The horse is already a champion, having won the Kentucky Derby in dominant fashion. And the story of the two regular guys who own the horse certainly makes you want to pull for the horse.
That Chrome has a 77-year-old trainer makes his an even better story.
