I just can't get enough of this horse and his owners' story. Isn't it the dream that we all had as little kids, owning a should-have-been-nothing horse who turns out to the super star?
We have our bets placed for this afternoon's race just like we did for the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. The odds, at 3-5, are so high that even if he does win, our winnings won't be worth the risk of betting, but we don't care. We're so excited about the race that our enthusiasm has encouraged at least one of our friends to place a bet himself. He gave my husband a hundred bucks claiming that he just wanted to be a part of Chrome's story. I think he gets to be a Chromie for sure.
Racing starts at 11:35 a.m. Eastern time, but the race we're all interested in comes later in the day. Post time for Chrome is 6:52. Best of luck, dude!
