Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome picked up his first graded stakes win in the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes on March 8 at Santa Anita Park. That victory punched his ticket to the 2014 Kentucky Derby as it was worth 50 points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby leaderboard.

A three-time winner in stakes restricted to California-bred horses before the San Felipe, California Chrome cemented his status as a top West Coast contender for the Triple Crown races with his 7 1/4-length San Felipe romp.

California Chrome followed the San Felipe with an equally impressive 5 1/4-length romp in the Santa Anita Derby, defeating highly regarded Grade 2 winners Hoppertunity and Candy Boy, to cement his credentials as the favorite for the Kentucky Derby on May 3.

California Chrome took home a stylish victory in the Kentucky Derby and followed it up with a win in the Preakness Stakes. After getting injured at the start of the race, California Chrome finished in a dead heat for fourth place in the 2014 Belmont Stakes.

The colt was given a vacation for the summer of 2014 and made his first start since the Triple Crown races on Sept. 20 in the Garde 2, $1-million Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing. California Chrome was trapped inside, much like in the Belmont Stakes, in the Pennsylvania Derby and faded in the stretch while winner Bayern blazed to a new track record.
