A victory away from horse racing’s first Triple Crown in 36 years, trainer Art Sherman at least raised the possibility Sunday morning that California Chrome might not run in the June 7 Belmont Stakes in New York if racing officials there won’t let him wear the nasal strip he’s worn in his last six victories in a row.
The nasal strips, designed to enhance breathing, are similar to ones used by humans. Sherman said California Chrome started wearing them six races ago at the suggestion of co-owner Perry Martin.
