Odds of California Chrome Winning the Triple Crown Now Pay Out $210

Some books had begun to offer odds of California Chrome winning the Triple Crown at +150, paying $15 for every $10 bet.  AceSportsbook.com has risen the bar somewhat, offering a $21 payout on every $10 bet.

It’s interesting to note that the odds of a Triple Crown occurring in 2014 were initially set at 10-1 prior to California Chrome wowing us all at the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago.  A horse hasn’t won the Triple Crown in over three decades. Since 1911, there have only been 11 Triple Crown winners. The last was Affirmed in 1978.

 

California Chrome doesn’t have a whole lot of competition at this weekend’s Preakness Stakes, at least not on paper.  Social Inclusion is widely seen as the only contender that can actually match up.

"We all hold our breath and say Please come out of that gate good," said California Chrome trainer Art Sherman. "And every time he has, he's run big races and won."

Most experts believe that a flubbed start means “gonners” for California Chrome, though that’s probably the only thing that will prevent him from winning this race.

"I think if he runs his race, we're all in trouble," said Terry Finley.  He is president of the West Point Thoroughbreds syndicate that owns Ring Weekend.  "You put together his races in California and the one in Kentucky. But how many horses have we just given them the black-eyed susans to before they run?"
