California Chrome failed in his bid to win the first Triple Crown in 36 years on Saturday, losing the Belmont Stakes to 9-1 long shot Tonalist.
California Chrome has won the Preakness to keep alive his bid to capture horse racing’s Triple Crown.
We here at CBS Local Sports have taken an interest in the names of horses who have won the Preakness Stakes. While most are pretty stately (kudos Knight of Ellerslie, 1884), others are, well, pretty weird. Behold the 11 weirdest names of horses that have won the Preakness…

At Churchill Downs, they are getting ready for Saturday’s running of the Kentucky Derby.
The field for the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby is the best we have seen since 2007. That year, colts that ran in the Derby went on to win major stakes in the summer and fall including the King’s Bishop, Haskell Stakes, Travers Stakes, Jockey Club Gold Cup, and the Breeders Cup Classic. It remains to be seen how the class of 2012 will perform after this year’s Triple Crown, but few would argue against the collective talent of this year’s crop of 3-year-olds.
