California Chrome Wins the Kentucky Derby -- May 4, 2014

Yesterday we were excited to watch California Chrome, a beautiful chestnut horse with white markings and a distinctive black mark on his blaze, win the Kentucky Derby.  He was the first horse bred in California to win since 1962.  He won by five lengths.  His owner lives in Yuba City. 

I took the photo of the Seabiscuit statue at Tanforan on 05-December-2011.  Seabiscuit was born and raised in Kentucky, but he had his greatest success while he was owned by Charles Howard, a San Francisco auto dealer.
