In 2008, trainer David Jacobson compiled a record of 73-16-21-12 at Delaware Park (21% winners, $1.61 ROI). Since then, the New York-based Jacobson has only saddled six runners at Delaware (6-2-0-4). After STORMIN MONARCHO's performance last Saturday, Jacobson may start shipping down more often.

Forget the Ali Shuffle and the Rope-A-Dope. California Chrome pulled off his best Mike Tyson (in his prime) impersonation in pummeling his nine rivals in last Saturday's Preakness Stakes at Pimlico. If you didn't believe that the Kentucky Derby hero was a legitimate heavyweight prior to the Preakness, his knockout of top contender Social Inclusion should convince you otherwise.

You don't need me to tell you that CALIFORNIA CHROME is the horse to beat and the most-likely winner of tomorrow's Preakness Stakes at Pimlico. Still, I am interested to see how SOCIAL INCLUSION does in the second leg of the Triple Crown.
