Jockey Victor Espinoza and California Chrome sped off from their inside post position, raced in the middle of the track as they pasted the stands for the first time, took a breather as they started the run up the back stretch. Beholder and Dortmund moved up as if to mount a challenge as they straightened for the run up the back stretch, however, California Chrome drew clear and maintained his advantage around the far turn. Champion Beholder drew closer turning for home and California Chrome again drew off. Victor Espinoza brought Chrome home in a canter to win by an easy 5 lengths. Dortmund was 2 1/4 lengths behind Beholder for the show. California Chrome is now 14-3-1 from 23 starts and he has earned $13,252,650.
