Mark Story: For Espinoza, a California 'dream'

Victor Espinoza recognized California Chrome's talent when he saw it last summer, and he pursued the chance to ride him. The Kentucky Derby was the fifth win in a row for Espinoza aboard California Chrome since the horse's connections replaced Alberto Delgado with the 41-year-old Mexico City native before the King Glorious Stakes last Dec. 22.
