2014 Santa Anita Derby Results: California Chrome Romps

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

California Chrome asserts his dominance on the West Coast by blowing out the field in the Santa Anita Derby.

California Chrome stalked the early pace, rolled to the lead at the top of the stretch, and easily won the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby in Southern California. Rebel Stakes winner Hoppertunity rallied late to finish second while Candy Boy could only muster third. California Chrome took the bulk of the action from the crowd, going to the post as the heavy, odds-on 3/5 favorite.

California Chrome is a three-year-old California-bred colt by by Lucky Pulpit out of a Not for Love mare (Love the Chase), trained by Art Sherman, and ridden by Victor Espinoza. With his victory in the Santa Anita Derby, California Chrome has now won four straight races, all by a minimum of five lengths.

It's on to Louisville for California Chrome!!
