California Chrome owners and Yuba City residents Perry and Denise Martin will be honored by the City Council Tuesday evening.

"We want to recognize those who have done something remarkably well for our community," Mayor Kash Gill said. "Yuba City is the Martins' home, and we are proud to call them our citizens. The recognition they have brought to Yuba City has done wonders and put our City on the national map."

California Chrome made history and captured the nation's hearts earlier this year when he won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness tournaments and fell just short of the prestigious Triple Crown.

Chrome became the first California born horse to win the Kentucky Derby since 1962 and the first to win the Preakness since 1986.
