California Chrome odds-on to win Hollywood Derby
California Chrome
California Chrome will start his turf debut from post 5.
Del Mar, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner California Chrome has been made the overwhelming 4-5 favorite for Saturday's $300,000 Hollywood Derby versus five challengers in the 1 1/8-mile turf race.

Owned by Steve Coburn and Perry Martin, California Chrome will start his turf debut from post 5 with Victor Espinoza again riding.

"I won the Derby from the No. 5 hole, so that's a lucky number for me," trainer Art Sherman noted about the draw. "It looks to me like there's speed to the inside. I don't think he'll be far off the pace. If somebody wants the lead, they can have it. They can't be going too slow, though; this time he'll come away from there running."  Full Story
