The morning after a hullabaloo erupted over his sore throat, Preakness favorite California Chrome galloped smoothly over a rain-splattered track at Pimlico Race Course. After his 6 a.m. workout Friday on the wettest track he's ever encountered, the Kentucky Derby winner's connections downplayed his throat condition, revealed Thursday after he coughed in the morning.  "I just want to say that California Chrome is fine,” said assistant trainer Alan Sherman. “His throat is fine.

ELMONT, N.Y. - There's an old saying in horse racing that all men are equal on the turf and under it. Put another way, this sport confounds sheiks and scions of American dynasties who drop millions of dollars in futile efforts to breed a Kentucky Derby winner. Meanwhile, two neophytes can spend $10,000 to breed a horse for the first time and come within a whisker of the Triple Crown. That's California Chrome's story as he prepares to chase racing's signature achievement in Saturday's Belmont Stakes.

Dynamic Impact's connections weren't sure what they had entering the April 19 Illinois Derby. The colt had flashed plenty of talent, but his performance in the afternoon never seemed to match his workouts in the morning. Facing the best competition of his life and starting from the No. 1 post, Dynamic Impact changed the narrative with a victory that surprised even his trainers. Four weeks later, he's a 12-1 fifth choice in the morning line at the Preakness. Is he simply a late bloomer?

LOUISVILLE, KY. -- His mother cost a mere $8,000 and his father performed for a modest stud fee of $2,000. That $10,000 investment - minuscule by elite racing standards - produced California Chrome, who had won $1.135 million even before he became the official favorite for the 2014 Kentucky Derby on Wednesday. His charmed run continued in the afternoon post-position draw, where California Chrome drew the No. 5 spot. Earlier in the day, co-owner Steve Coburn had said he was hoping for a starting spot between No. 6 and No. 10, but a near miss wasn't bad. "I think it's a perfect spot," said trainer Art Sherman.

He's a West Coast prodigy, but California Chrome's roots reach deep into Maryland. Both the dam and one grand-dam of the Preakness favorite were foaled and raised on a 70-acre farm in Chestertown. The owners, Tom and Chris Bowman, couldn't have imagined the outcome of their breeding before California Chrome won the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago. "This is a storybook thing that we're watching right now," said Tom Bowman, 72, a horse reproduction veterinarian who owns Dance Forth Farm.

It's Preakness Week in Baltimore, which is only slightly more sober than a New Orleans Mardi Gras, more tradition-filled than the Little League World Series and definitely more diverse than the Masters Tournament. It's the city's time to shine, and no amount of clouds or rain are going to dampen the celebration. A round of black-eyed Susans, please, for the guest of honor this year who can likely be found over at Pimlico Race Course 's Stall 40 where the Kentucky Derby winner is always housed.
