Kudos to Not For Love grandson California Chrome, winner of the 140th Kentucky Derby! Lion Hearted grandson Commanding Curve completes Derby exacta
The first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs proved a showcase for Northview Broodmare Sire Power, as Derby favorite California Chrome, out of the Not For Love mare Love the Chase, cruised home to win by an eased up one and three-quarter lengths, with Commanding Curve, out of the Lion Hearted mare Mother, closing best of the other 18 starters to finish a rousing second in the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby.
Not For Love is the broodmare sire of five stakes winners this year, more than the likes of Gone West, Unbridled, Deputy Minister and Giant's Causeway, and he ranks fifth among the nation's broodmare sires by earnings. The Mid-Atlantic region's all-time leading sire by stakes horses, Not For Love is now the grandsire of the Derby winner. Classic lines, classic results, that's Not For Love!
