BALTIMORE -- California Chrome might abandon his Triple Crown bid if New York officials do not allow the colt to wear a nasal strip in the Belmont Stakes. Jack Crawford Jersey . Trainer Art Sherman made no threats about the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner passing on a chance to become horse racings 12th Triple Crown winner, but he suggested it was a possibility. "Id have to leave it up to the owners," he said Sunday. "I know theyll be upset." Neither the New York State Gaming Commission nor the New York Racing Association stewards has received a request to use nasal strips in the Belmont on June 7. "If a request to use nasal strips is made, the decision on whether to permit them or not will be fully evaluated and determined by the stewards," Gaming Commission spokesman Lee Park said Sunday. Among the Gaming Commissions rules governing Belmont Park is one that states: Only equipment specifically approved by the stewards shall be worn or carried by a jockey or a horse in a race. In a post on its Twitter feed, NYRA said: "We operate under the rules set forth by (at)NYSGamingCommission." California Chrome has worn a nasal strip during his current six-race winning streak after co-owner Perry Martin wanted to try it. Sherman is based in California and said he wasnt aware that using one in New York might be a problem. He said he would talk to New York racing officials and the horses owners. Some horses, like humans, wear nasal strips to assist breathing. The colt wears the strip only during races, not training. At 1 1/2 miles, the Belmont is the longest and most grueling of the three Triple Crown races. "I think it opens up his air passage and gives him that little extra oomph that he needs, especially going a mile and a half," Sherman said. "Anytime you can have a good air passage, that means a lot for these thoroughbreds." Sherman said Martin likes to try different products and the co-owner thought a nasal strip might benefit California Chrome. "This guy, Perry Martin, he might not run if they say you cant run with a nasal strip. Hes very funny about things like that," the trainer said. "I dont know why they would ban you from wearing one. Well have to cross that bridge when we get there." Other states allow nasal strips while racing, and even some jockeys wear them. "Its something nonmedical that can be beneficial to a workout or a race," California-based trainer Doug ONeill said by phone. "If you think your horse could use some help with their nostrils, you do it." Two years ago, ONeill trained Ill Have Another to victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness with the colt wearing a nasal strip. New York officials told ONeill that his horse couldnt wear one in the Belmont. The issue became moot when Ill Have Another was scratched the day before the race because of a leg injury. "I cant imagine them being that ignorant that they would do that again," ONeill said. "New York has gotten a lot better with common sense. It seems like a more rational place now." NYRA has several new officials since 2012, including Martin Panza, the former racing secretary at now-closed Betfair Hollywood Park in California who now oversees racing operations at Belmont, Saratoga and Aqueduct. Sherman said California Chrome came out of Saturdays Preakness in good shape, emptying his feed tub after the race. The colt playfully nibbled on his leather shank outside the barn as his two front legs were washed off Sunday. A worker removed a poultice from each lower front leg, which had been applied under bandages as a precaution to protect the colts tendons. The nasal strip could prove insignificant, as did California Chromes cough that had no impact on his Preakness run. The colt has a small blister in his throat that caused him to cough last week, triggering rumours that he wouldnt run at Pimlico. Sherman thinks California Chrome will win the Triple Crown, something no horse has done since Affirmed in 1978. "I have a good feeling about it. Im really confident," he said. "They better have their running shoes on. I dont care how many fresh shooters they have. Hes the real McCoy." If California Chrome competes, the Belmont Stakes is shaping up as a possible 11-horse race, including two newcomers to the Triple Crown trail: Commissioner, sixth in the Arkansas Derby; and Tonalist, the Peter Pan Stakes winner. Other probables include the second- through fifth-place finishers in the Kentucky Derby: Commanding Curve, Danza, Wicked Strong and Samraat. Intense Holiday, 12th in the Derby, is on the list. Three Preakness runners could return: Ride On Curlin (second), Social Inclusion (third) and Kid Cruz (eighth). Derrick Shelby Jersey . Ryu (8-3) allowed a run and three hits in six innings and struck out six in his 13th start. In his first 13 starts last season -- his first in the major leagues -- the left-hander was 8-5 with a 2.85 ERA. This was the ninth time this year that Ryu has allowed fewer than three earned runs, and he is 7-0 in those games. Ricardo Allen Jersey . What they did need, the Devils got from Patrik Elias. Elias scored a power-play goal 40 seconds into overtime to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars. http://www.thefaclonsshoponline.com/Youth-Steve-Bartkowski-Falcons-Jersey/ .cas NHL Play of the Year showdown continues today with a man whos spent most of his career on highlight reels and a goalie actually "reaching back" for a save.The Winnipeg Jets are on a roll as they host the slumping St. Louis Blues at the MTS Centre tonight. Viewers in the Jets region can watch the game on TSN Jets at 6:30pm ct/7:30pm et. The game is also available on TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg at 7pm ct. On Saturday, Winnipeg won for the second time in three games, as Mark Scheifele scored 1:04 into overtime to give the Jets a 2-1 decision over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Blake Wheeler had the Jets regulation goal before later setting up Scheifeles game-winner to help Winnipeg complete a successful six-game road trip with a 4-2-0 record. "3-3 would not have felt very good," Jets head coach Claude Noel said. "4-2 is a lot more comforting for us. It would have been disappointing to go home 3-3." Al Montoya did his part between the pipes for Winnipeg, turning aside 28-of-29 shots in the triumph. "I thought Montoya played really strong," Noel said. "He battled back hard." Winnipeg, though, has lost three in a row on home ice and will be trying to avoid their first four-game losing streak at MTS Centre since Feb.7-17 of last season. St. Louis suffered a rare home loss on Sunday, as it fell behind early in a 5-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at Scottrade Center. Jaden Schwartz and Patrik Berglund tallied for the Blues, who have dropped three of four. Jaroslav Halak was pulled after giving up three goals on eight shots in 7 1/2 minutes of action. Brian Elliott finished the contest with 13 stops aand may find himself between the pipes on Tuesday. Tevin Coleman Jersey. "I need to look at myself and everybody else needs to probably find the answers," Halak said. Over the past four games St. Louis, which dropped to 12-2-2 at home on the year, has been outscored 9-1 in the first period, 9-0 in the three losses. "I think its the same for every game," head coach Ken Hitchcock said. "When you dont have a mindset of checking, then that affects your competitive level, races for pucks, puck battles, 50-50 pucks. When your mindset is something other than checking to start with, that affects everything. Its been the same. We went through this last year, and it was, what, a month we went through this where we had to change our attitude towards what was important. "Well score lots if we check better. Well get way more offensive-zone time. Were just chasing the game. Were chasing the game because were not starting with the puck, were not keeping the puck, were not determined when were being checked, and were not determined when were checking, so you play slow. We look slow and then we speed up as the game goes on. We got more competitive as the game went on, but were allowing the other team to dictate the checking tempo and it affects every part of our game." St. Louis, though, has still scored two or more goals on home ice in 22 straight games dating to last season. The Blues are 4-0-1 in the last five matchups with the Jets and won 3-2 in the most recent one Oct. 29.
