After dominant wins at the Kentucky Derby and The Preakness Stakes, Yuba City owned California Chrome has a chance to become only the eleventh Triple Crown winner in the last 114 years.
Yuba City is preparing for California Chrome's Triple Crown run at The Belmont Stakes by planning a large-scale viewing party in the city's downtown business district.
The event will run from 12:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Saturday, and the race is scheduled to begin at 3:18 P.M.
With California Chrome's owners residing in Yuba City, this event celebrates the Martin family and the underdog that raced his way to the hearts of people here and across the nation.
The viewing party will take place on Plumas Street from just south of Church Street to Scott Street. Street closures will begin at 10:00 a.m. and run through 8:00 p.m. There will be one large viewing screen at the north end of the event near Church and Plumas streets and one screen toward the south end of the event near Center and Plumas streets.
