         Horse racing fans are excited for this weekend's Belmont Stakes.
         A thoroughbred from the Central Valley could win the Triple Crown.
         California Chrome galloped in the rain along a track that could lead to history.
         It' s been 36 years since a horse has won the Triple Crown.
         And only 11 horses have ever won all three races.
        Chrome is the odds on favorite to join that exclusive club at Belmont Saturday.
        If you're looking for a good omen for California Chrome, he'll start at the number two post.
        It's the same position that Triple Crown winner Secretariat started from when he set a course record and won by 31 lengths.
        The Big Fresno Fair is hosting a satellite wagering party to celebrate and watch the Belmont Stakes.
        The excitement begins Saturday morning at eight at the Fair Grandstand.
        Admission ranges from 5 to 15 dollars.
        Estimated post-time is 3:52 p.m.
