The Kentucky Derby is among the world’s toughest races to win but California Chrome made it look easy.

The so-called “new shooters” — those that didn’t make the cut for the Kentucky Derby but will enter the Preakness — includes a mixed-bag of 3-year-old colts and one filly who will take on the “boys.”
