Triple Crown win in jeopardy

California Chrome may be pulled from Belmont Stakes

Associated Press

California Chrome might abandon his Triple Crown bid in the Belmont Stakes if New York officials do not allow the colt to wear a nasal strip.

Trainer Art Sherman suggested it was a possibility, although he made no threats about  California Chrome passing on a chance to become horse racing's 12th Triple Crown winner.

The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner has worn a nasal strip during his current six-race winning streak after co-owner Perry Martin wanted to try it.

Sherman is based in California and said he wasn't aware that using one in New York might be a problem.

He said he would talk to New York racing officials and the horse's owners.

Some horses, like humans, wear nasal strips to assist breathing.

The colt wears the strip only during races, not training.

At 1 1/2 miles, the Belmont on June 7 is the longest and most grueling of the three Triple Crown races.

    Most every '82 Mustang GT delivered for fendi outlet magazine road tests had the TRX suspension -- a sensible PR ploy, even if the tires didn't like dragstrip work. "The Michelins provide superb cornering grip," said AutoWeek's Levy, "but they're poorly rolex submariner replica matched against the Mustang's torque. Delightful. Full-throttle acceleration is a rush job, quick and satisfying…. Braking is just as sure. A fine match. Try a turn. Brake, commit, now steer with the throttle. That's right, steer with the louis vuitton outlet throttle. It works. The TRX suspension guys have been vindicated.
