Will California Chrome win the Triple Crown?

Will California Chrome win the Triple Crown? Stars say no. California Chrome is represented by the 1st house, ruled by Venus and Saturn. The Ascendant is at 29 degrees--a degree of crisis. It also says "too late," to ask the question. Question could be moot, but how I take this is that I didn't actually LOOK at the chart 'til Monday, and by then CC's owners are thinking of not even running him. There is no positive relationship between Venus and "winning" (the 10th house, the Sun), so, no win. (A more technical explanation available if anyone requests it).

Grand Cross Happiness

A man said to the Buddha, "I want happiness." The Buddha replied, "First remove 'I', that's ego. Then remove 'want,' that's desire. See, now you are left with only happiness." Good point to remember as we leave the "breakdown or breakthrough" patterns that dominated April's sky. In the chart the circled planets are still in "Grand Cross" formation, but the dotted lines connecting them tell us the pattern is passing and we can consider coming out from our blanket tents.
