Description

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome recorded his first workout since returning to trainer Art Sherman’s barn, going three furlongs in 37.60 seconds at Los Alamitos. According to the Daily Racing Form, Sherman timed the colt in 37.37 seconds, including an opening furlong in 13.20 seconds. The work delighted Sherman, who said afterwards, “When he strides out, he’s a different horse. He does it so effortlessly.” Possible options for California Chrome’s next race include the Los Alamitos Mile on Sept. 20 or the Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita on Sept. 27, although nothing’s been finalized. “I do want to stay in California,” Sherman said.
