California Chrome Allowed To Run At Belmont Stakes

It's a go for California Chrome. The Coalinga, California horse just got the green light to race at the Belmont Stakes with a nose strip.

The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner wore a nose strip in both races, but since winning the Preakness, there was concern that the storied horse might not be allowed to run in New York with a nose strip. Early Monday morning, the New York Racing Association gave the horse the OK.{}

A win at the Belmont Stakes on June 7th would get California Chrome the elusive Triple Crown.

Affirmed was the last Triple Crown winner back in 1978.
