Patrice Wolfson is ready to give up her title as the owner of the last Triple Crown winner.

She may get the chance if California Chrome is successful in his bid to join Affirmed and 10 other horses atop racing's pinnacle.

No horse since Affirmed in 1978 has swept the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes. Since then, 11 have won the first two legs only to fail in the 1 ½-mile Belmont, the longest and most grueling of the three races.

Wolfson owned Affirmed with her late husband Louis. She believes California Chrome has the potential to be a great horse, and she'll be cheering for him at Belmont Park on June 7.
