California Chrome is the talk of the horse world. The Derby and Preakness in the rearview, he’s a grueling mile and a half from the Triple Crown and his place in equine immortality. He’s the product of humble breeding and blue-collar dreams. He’s the dashing chestnut colt with tremendous speed, stamina and determination (and something about a nasal strip…).

Now, he’s your ride.

Here’s Chrome enjoying a pre-Derby workout at his home track of Los Alamitos, with exercise rider Willie Delgado in the irons (and talking to his horse the whole time).

Feel the power and hold on tight.
