California Chrome is the favorite in today's Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown. There has been an awful lot of rain, so when I saw this pre-photoshopped pic of California Chrome practicing, I thought of none other than Muddy Mudskipper of Ren & Stimpy fame.
Muddy would be the favorite today, if only he didn't keep throwing his jockey, Cousin Sven.
Ren & Stimpy fans be advised. Track conditions wet. Please wear your rubber nipples.
OK, so I watched cartoons in my youth (30's), so what?
Here is a picture from 2011 of California Chrome as a foal. Check out those chrome socks and hood ornament! Don't you be a foal and bet against this colt!
