California Chrome captured the Preakness Stakes this past Saturday. Victor Espinoza and California Chrome are now heavily favored to be the first Triple Crown winners in more than 35 years. If California Chrome can capture a victory in the Belmont Stakes on June 7, he will become the 12th Triple Crown winner in horse racing history and the first since Affirmed in 1978.
We are so pleased that the Common Ground Alliance and its members have put 811 in front of an estimated combined race viewing audience of 28 million people and millions more in resulting media coverage, reminding them to always call 811 before digging. This greater awareness of 811 supports our common goal of damage prevention in all of our communities.
Best of luck to Espinoza and California Chrome!
