Kentucky Derby

No Crown for Chrome

California Chrome's bid for an elusive Triple Crown fell victim to the crush of the Belmont Stakes and the fresh legs of Tonalist. There will be no added company to the list of 11 Thoroughbred demigods who managed to sweep all three American classics. After being so sublime in winning the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, racing's anointed darling California Chrome couldn't turn back the demands of his final 1 1/2-mile test, finishing in a dead heat for fourth behind upstart race winner Tonalist, who nipped Commissioner by a head in the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes.
