Kentucky Derby 2014 - California Chrome

It's quite a rags to riches story. His dam, Love The Chase was purchased for only $8,000 and now she is the mom of a Kentucky Derby winner. Love The Chase was the granddaughter of one of Northern Dancer's prolific daughters in Dance Number so it's hard to believe she was such a bargain. Longshot Commanding Curve was second and Danza third. Of course all three were descendants of The Dancer.
