California Chrome May NOT Race at Belmont

 

California Chrome was the winner of the Preakness putting him in line to become racing's first Triple Crown winner since 1978 - but it may not come to pass.

The horse races with a nose strip that, much like human nose strips, improves respitory flow, and their illegal in New York state, where the 3rd leg of the Triple Crown is run at Belmont.

California Chrome's trainer says he will not wear the strip, but the decision to go will be up to the owners.
