NY drops ban on equine nasal strips; California Chrome will run for Triple Crown at Belmont

NEW YORK - The three Stewards at Belmont Park today unanimously agreed to allow the use of equine nasal strips for all horses running at racetracks of The New York Racing Association, Inc (NYRA), effective immediately. 

The longstanding ban had threatened Kentucky Derby and Belmont winner California Chrome’s appearance at the Belmont in three weeks but today's decision clears the way for the horse to run in the third of racing's Triple Crown.
