California Chrome's Nasal Strip Approved For Belmont

(Elmont, NY) -- Preakness and Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome will be allowed to wear a nasal strip in his bid for a Triple Crown. New York officials ruled the horse can continue the chase with the nasal strip at the Belmont Stakes on June 7. A statement says the vote was unanimous.

Following a successful Preakness, Maryland Jockey Club President Tom Chuckas is ready for a Triple Crown schedule change. He says the three races should be spread out to improve quality of competition. The move would put the Preakness on the first Saturday in June.
