Default Horse Racing 2014

The Preakness Stakes is about to start.

California Chrome won the Kentucky Derby pulling away and is the favorite in this race.

Quote:
California Chrome's dam is Love the Chase, and he is her first foal.[7] She was purchased as a yearling for $30,000 by an agent for a horse ownership group called the Blinkers On Racing Stable.[8] As a two- and three-year-old filly, she ran six times and won on her fourth try in a maiden claiming race at Golden Gate Fields. After her win, Steve Coburn and Perry Martin became her official owners.[9] They paid $8,000 for her, and after two more races, they retired her in 2009.[8][9] They hoped she would become a good broodmare.[7] When she retired, it was discovered that she had a breathing problem. When California Chrome became a Kentucky Derby contender, Martin and Coburn turned down an offer of $2.1 million for Love the Chase.[8]
When they bought Love the Chase, a casual observer remarked that only a "dumb ass" would buy her, and so Coburn and Martin decided to name their racing operation DAP Racing, which stands for "Dumb Ass Partners".[11] They created a caricature of a buck-toothed jackass to adorn the back of their racing silks and picked purple and green, the favorite colors of Carolyn Coburn and Denise Martin, for their stable colors.[3] The initials "DAP" appear on California Chrome's blinker hood and the left front of the jockey's silks.[12]
