BALTIMORE — California Chrome has run away from the competition in five consecutive victories, winning by an average of over five lengths.

The Kentucky Derby winner has had it his way ever since Victor Espinoza climbed aboard back in December when the streak began.

Whether they do again in the 1 3-16-mile Preakness at Pimlico on Saturday depends on a good trip, the tactics used by the chestnut colt's nine rivals and a little luck. California Chrome is the even-money favorite against nine rivals.
