California Chrome cruises to easy victory in 140th Kentucky Derby

California Chrome dominated the 140th Kentucky Derby, winning by several lengths over longshot Commanding Curve. Danza rallied to finish in third place, Wicked Strong in fourth.

California Chrome was the heavy favorite at 5/2 and did not disappoint. He is now won 5 races in a row and looks poised for a decent run at the Triple Crown. Here is the ending of the race set to Ginuwine’s Pony, because, well, it only makes sense.
