Today, Yuba City will honor California Chrome and his owners by presenting them with the Key to the City.
Perry and Denies Martin will receive the key at 6 tonight at the council chambers.
California Chrome was the first California-bred colt to sweep the first two legs of the Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. He then finished fourth at the Belmont Stakes, despite racing with an injury.
Yuba City's mayor says California Chrome was an outstanding representative of Yuba City and his namesake state.
A break will follow the council meeting to celebrate with cake and refreshments.
The public will be able to meet and congratulate the Martins.
