LOUISVILLE, Ky. Calvin Pickard Jersey . -- The owners of California Chrome are putting all their hopes into the chestnut colt to win the Kentucky Derby. After all, hes the only horse they own. California Chrome, based at lesser-known Los Alamitos racetrack in suburban Los Angeles, is the early 5-2 favourite for Saturdays 140th Derby with good reason. He has won four straight races by a combined 24 1/4 lengths under Victor Espinoza, who won the Derby in 2002 with War Emblem. "Hes so light on his feet," Espinoza said. "He just does things so easy and makes my job easy." California Chromes owners, Steve Coburn and Perry Martin, are no Kentucky blue bloods. Theyre a couple of working stiffs who live near Reno, Nevada. A trainer called them "dumb asses" for getting into the racing game, inspiring the duo to put the letters DAP on their silks, which stands for Dumb Ass Partners. "Were going to go down in history," Coburn predicted. California Chrome is the product of an $8,000 mare and a $2,500 stallion. Hes earned more than $1 million already, making it somewhat easier for Coburn and Martin to turn down a pre-Derby offer of $6 million for a 51 per cent stake in the horse. "Weve been blessed with this colt," Coburn said. "The first time we saw him, we knew it was going to be something special." If their tale seems improbable, well, its happened before at Churchill Downs. Mine That Bird, a 50-1 shot owned and trained by two guys from New Mexico mocked as cowboys, pulled off the stunning upset in the 2009 Derby. At 77, Art Sherman, who oversees California Chrome, would be the oldest trainer to win. His colt would be the first California-bred to wear the garland of red roses in 52 years. "Hes feeling good and hes doing good," Sherman said. "Hes coming up to this race right." Rosie Napravnik wants to grab history, too. No female jockey has won the Derby, although she came closest -- fifth last year. Napravnik will ride 20-1 shot Vicars In Trouble. Her husband, Joe Sharp, works closely with the Louisiana-bred colt as assistant to trainer Mike Maker. "The story would almost be too good if we won it," she said. Wicked Strong is the early 6-1 second choice. The colt is named for the victims of last years Boston Marathon bombings and is trained by Jimmy Jerkens, who has his first Derby horse. Trainer Todd Pletcher has four horses in the Derby -- Danza and Intense Holiday are both 8-1 while his other two are longer shots, 30-1 Vinceremos and 50-1 We Miss Artie. Danza is named for "Taxi" actor Tony Danza, who planned to attend the Derby. Maker will saddle three horses, all long shots. Besides Vicars In Trouble, he has 15-1 General a Rod and 50-1 Harrys Holiday. "When those gates open, anything can happen," Maker said. Three-time Derby winner Bob Baffert is down to 20-1 shot Chitu after being forced to scratch early second favourite Hoppertunity because of a minor foot problem. "California Chrome has proven hes a really good horse," Baffert said, adding, "Theres a lot of parity in this field. Everybody might have a chance." Getting the ideal trip in the 1 1/4-mile Derby is important, especially with the traffic from 19 horses making a chaotic charge into the first turn. Jockeys want to avoid anything that would prevent their horse from getting into rhythm, like being bumped, cut off or blocked. Sherman believes the key is the first 70 yards. "You want to get out and get yourself some position," he said. Trainer Steve Asmussen takes a shot with Tapiture, who started three times at Churchill Downs as a 2-year-old. Asmussen is under investigation by Kentucky and New York racing officials after an animal rights group alleged he and his former assistant mistreated horses in their care. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of 73 degrees, with a crowd of at least 140,000 expected. Keep an eye on jockey Calvin Borel. He and 15-1 shot Ride On Curlin will break from the No. 18 spot in the starting gate. Borel will try to hustle the colt over to his favourite path on the track -- the rail. The rider nicknamed "Bo-rail" for his fence-skimming rides has three Derby wins in the last seven years. Sven Andrighetto Jersey . Granlund scored 2:04 into the first period. Max Reinhart, on his first NHL shift of the season, neatly stripped the puck from Zack Smith at the Senators blue-line. As he moved in, his attempted shot deflected into the slot where Granlund buried a shot past Craig Anderson. Lanny McDonald Jersey . The Marlies surrendered two power-play goals and failed to score on six man-advantage opportunities en route to a 4-1 defeat in American Hockey League action on Saturday. http://www.hockeyavalancheteamshop.com/ . As they are wont to do, the Spurs made things real easy. The Spurs signed Parker to a multi-year contract extension on Friday, ensuring that the six-time All-Star point guard will be in the fold whether Duncan and Ginobili are able to continue their careers or not.Each week, TSN.ca takes a look at the top available players in fantasy football ahead of the weekly waiver deadline. Quarterbacks Colt McCoy, Washington Redskins (at Vikings) Last Week: 25/30, 299 yards, 1 INT McCoy should only be considered in Two-QB leagues and even then is a risky addition with Robert Griffin III potentially returning in Week 9, but the former third round pick had one of the most productive games of his career Monday night against the Cowboys. That could push RG3’s return date back two weeks when the Redskins return from their bye. Zach Mettenberger, Tennessee Titans (bye week) Last Week: 27/41, 299 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT Mettenberger’s middling QB2 numbers were inflated by garbage time stats, but it doesn’t matter when or how you get your points in fantasy football, and the Titans’ rookie QB figures to have plenty of garbage time to pad his stats moving forward. Mettenberger is still just an option in Two-QB leagues only. Running Backs Lorenzo Taliaferro, Baltimore Ravens (at Steelers) Last Week: 7 carries, 27 yards, 2 TDs; 2 receptions (3 targets), 42 yards Ravens’ backup running back Taliaferro has two things going for him in fantasy. He’s clearly the team’s choice in short yardage situations – and scored two touchdowns last week as a result of that – and is an option for Joe Flacco in the passing game. It’s kind of a weird combination, but one that could be worth a flyer for a desperate fantasy team. It’s slim pickings at RB on the waiver wire this late into the season and with no major injuries over the weekend, but if Jeremy Hill is available in your league he may be worth a look. Giovani Bernard didn’t finish the game this week for the Bengals and while his injury doesn’t appear serious, if he misses any games Hill should be in line for an opportunity to put up points. Wide Receivers Martavis Bryant, Pittsburgh Steelers (vs. Ravens) Last Week: 5 receptions (7 targets), 83 yards, 2 TDs The Steelers probably should have played Bryant much earlier in thhe year. Joe Colborne Jersey. Finally playing the last two weeks, Bryant, a rookie, has averaged 15 points a week. Now, Ben Roethlisberger isn’t going to throw six touchdowns every week which means Bryant isn’t going to catch two touchdowns every week, but the fourth-rounder is averaging six targets a game and should be at least a flex candidate moving forward. Brandon LaFell, New England Patriots (vs. Broncos) Last Week: 11 receptions (11 targets), 124 yards, 1 TD A look at LaFell’s stat line over the past six weeks suggests he’s a better Week 11 play (after the Patriots’ bye) than Week 9, but maybe grab him now just in case. LaFell has put up huge games every other week, in between very mediocre performances. Jokes aside, LaFell is getting more and more play in a Patriots’ offence that has been strong since the ‘sky is falling’ warnings of a couple weeks ago. John Brown, Arizona Cardinals (at Cowboys) Last Week: 5 receptions (10 targets), 119 yards, 1 TD Brown had his first big game in four weeks and second of the season. The rookie is talented but still very inconsistent, so he’s a boom or bust pick moving forward that’s still probably more bust than boom. Brown’s 10 targets were a season high however, so there’s hope his down weeks aren’t quite as down moving forward. Another rookie receiver to keep an eye on is the Colts’ Donte Moncrief. It shouldn’t be long before Moncrief passes Hakeem Nicks on the depth chart and if that move coincides with Reggie Wayne’s injury, Moncrief could be in line for a big week. Tight Ends Tim Wright, New England Patriots (vs. Broncos) Last Week: 7 receptions (7 targets), 61 yards, 1 TD Wright isn’t the second tight end the Patriots once had, but every once in a while he shows signs that he could be. Last week was one of those times, as Wright secured his third touchdown of the game and second double digit point week. Wright is the best “backup” tight end in the league and better than a lot of starters. He’s still just a bye week fill-in however.
