California Chrome kicked into another gear to storm in front of Ride on Curlin and win the Preakness on Saturday.

While it’s a long shot, a victory at Belmont on June 7 would secure a Triple Crown win for the chestnut colt. Since 1978, 11 horses have won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, but failed to win Belmont.

“It’s an awesome feeling,” said California Chrome jockey Victor Espinoza. “Today it was just a crazy race.”

Here are some photos from the Preakness.
