Today on the show Ken will be previewing the run for the Triple Crown. The Preakness is stage 2 of such feet in horse racing and the Odds on Favorite is California Chrome right from Yuba City, CA. As Mark pointed out yesterday Ken said this was the horse to watch leading into the Kentucky Derby. As the Derby drew closer the talk about (CC) gained momentum. (CC) is FAST and won the Derby by a lot however winning the Triple Crown is not an easy task. Affirmed was the last horse to win the Triple Crown back in 1978, Seattle Slew in 1977 and Secretariat in 1973. Photographer Dave Grashoff snapped this picture yesterday during he and Ken's coverage on Good Day Sacramento. As much as I do not understand the goings on of horse racing it is kind of cool to have a local doing so well. For me the amount of coverage (CC) is getting reminds me of the 49'ers Playoff Runs in the NFL. This town is a buzz.
Cody, Amy and crew will make sure the show is as much fun as always on the weekend too. So With that lets see what else is taking place Today in the News.....

All this and more in Today in the News Weekend Edition Part 1....
In this hour Cody revealed he has lost 11 lbs on his diet. Ken reported live from the Preakness and California Chrome. Melissa was in Folsom to see what Karen had for breakfast at Karen's Bakery. Tina was checking out the Chicken Coop Egg-travaganza Tour in Sacramento. Cambi was watching a 4 year old on a dancing horse at the Galt Strawberry Festival. Today's Show us yours was Bacon. The #GDSJustCurious Question was What book have you read multiple times.
In the GREAT 8 Cambi and Sam from CBS13 dumped whipped cream on a kids head at the Strawberry Festival and talked to a Buffalo woman who makes Authentic Polish Food. Ken talked with race goers at Preakness including 1 who is a Sensational Senior who turns 85 on Monday but still works everyday. Melissa was in the Pow Wow Days Parade. Tina was on the West Steps of the Capital for the 5k Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides walk. Cody chatted with owners of 2 horses who are cousins of California Chrome. Cody also talked to Chris Allen Poe about his new book.
In this hour Ken went from the Preakness Finish line before he headed to the Infield. Then the dump button made it's appearance having to dump out 2 times during his segment. Cody was with the Flying Pig out of Oregon as he prepared chicken wrapped in bacon. Melissa continued from Pow Wow Days Parade. Cambi was in Elk Grove for the Chili Festival. Nancy Bradley was in studio first to break news she might be getting her own TV show and then answering viewer questions. Tina was at Country Club Lanes for Big Brother Big Sister Bowl for Kids Sake. Urban Lace joined via Skype to talk about their Bike Tube Jewelry. These are really impressive pieces.
In the final hour Tina was checking out a new brunch spot in Sacramento. Melissa continued from Pow Wow Days. DeRay Davis stopped by to talk about his appearance at Tommy T's this weekend and his role in 21 Jump Street. Yes he shot Johnny Depp. Cody booked the Wolverine Claw creator. Cambi was at a Studebaker car show. Lori had our Hot Headlines. Amy tasted the Chicken Shrimp Bacon BBQ and DeRay Davis tried it too.
Today on the weekend show Ken made a rare appearance although he is out in Maryland covering the Preakness and all things California Chrome including tweeting out a photo some 13 hours before the race getting ready with a backwards jog. I was told by sources this type of jog is very common.
One of my favorite segments from Ken today was when he met some race goers including a couple from Tennessee, a woman who liked (CC) for its color of purple and an 85 year old celebrating his birthday because he has to work Monday making him in Instant Sensational Senior.
We all love a parade including Melissa who was in the Pow Wow Days parade along with Mobile 13. After the parade was over she jumped in a ball ate a donut and rolled across a pool. I love Melissa she always knows how to laugh.
Carabba on the Catwalk was back this week with Urban Lace based out of Oregon. This team (not sure of a couple) take old bike tires and tubes and make awesome jewelry out of them.
Tina was checking out a chicken coop tour, Bloody Mary brunch and bowling for kids to benefit Big Brother Big Sister.
The Flying Pig came down from Oregon to share his Chicken and Shrimp wrapped in bacon BBQ. It looked so good plus from the distributions smelt delicious. However with Cody on his special diet he had to risk temptation once again to not try any and I am proud to say Cody beat those temptations and did not eat any.
2 of my favorite guess came into studio today. First Bonnie from Triad Fabric who should how to make outdoor seat cushions and the GREAT Nancy Bradley who answered viewer questions and said she might be getting a TV show. Congrats Nancy.
Cambi was checking out the Strawberry festival in Galt getting the scoop on authentic polish food and strawberries. She even found a kid to make into a shortcake with whip cream on top. Plus she checked out a Studabaker show.
Tomorrow is a very busy day on the show including Dishin With Tina, Eleanor and Oakdale turning into chocolate.
