California Chrome, the favorite going into the 140th Kentucky Derby, won the Race for the Roses on Saturday. But he also turned in a great performance meeting NBC duo Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski in a pre-taped segment. Watch a highlight below in which Weir reads the ingredients of Chrome’s lucky cookies to the horse. (Chrome nipped at Weir, which is why Lipinski later picked him to win.)
Also below, a look at Weir’s hat, which did not disappoint, and another must-see moment (when Weir describes Wildcat Red’s breath).

P.S. The horse named Danza came in third.
