California Chrome Looks To Win Triple Crown

All eyes are on horse racing this Saturday, as California Chrome looks to be the first Triple Crown winner since 1978 with a win at the Belmont Stakes.

Racing analyst Ed DeRosa says he thinks there's just a 50-50 chance that'll happen.

DeRosa says it's a lot harder to win the series nowadays.

He says the toughest part is winning three difficult events in just five weeks when not all the competitors are participating in all of the events.

However, California Chrome is the favorite to win and could join racing royalty like Secretariat, War Admiral, and Seattle Slew, and last Triple Crown winner, Affirmed.

Post time for the Belmont Stakes is 6:35 p.m.
