Jerardi: California Chrome hard to oppose in World Cup


The Dubai World Cup at Meydan on Saturday obviously is hard to analyze from a Beyer Speed Figure perspective because just half the field has raced in the U.S. I have no way of knowing how Japanese sensation Hokko Tarumae might match up with the Americans, or exactly what his $10.3 million in earnings means. I have to believe that if California Chrome runs to his best Beyers, the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner is going to be very difficult to beat.
