“We could not be more excited about California Chrome’s comeback, and this website is a way for us to share his 2016 season with the fans that have really embraced and supported him beyond our wildest imagination,” said Duncan Taylor, President & CEO at Taylor Made. “California Chrome is such a special horse, and we are hopeful that he has a special season ahead of him for his tremendous fan base to follow every step of the way. We plan to do some cool things on the website as his racing goals unfold, and we look forward to the fan interaction and support.”

Trained by Art Sherman, California Chrome has been entered into the $200,000 San Pasqual where he’ll reunite with jockey Victor Espinoza, who will be debuting the colors of the new ownership group, California Chrome, LLC, a partnership consisting of Perry & Denise Martin, Taylor Made, and several prominent breeders. California Chrome will make his first start of the year off of a final six-furlong tune-up last Saturday at Santa Anita in 1:10 flat that prompted Sherman to exclaim California Chrome is “the best he’s ever been”.

The Champion 3-Year-Old and Horse Of The Year in 2014, California Chrome has already established himself as the most accomplished racehorse from the A.P. Indy sire line, with four Grade 1 wins to his credit – two Classics including the Kentucky Derby (G1) & Preakness S. (G1) – and earnings of $6,322,650 to date. His other Grade 1 wins include the fastest Santa Anita Derby (G1) since Indian Charlie in 1998, and a win in the Hollywood Derby (G1) on turf to close out his championship sophomore season. He became only the fourth 3-year-old colt to win Horse Of The Year honors since 2000, joining such current top sires as Curlin and Tiznow.

California Chrome made 18 starts in 23 months at the start of his career as a 2-year-old and 3-year-old, including starts in 16 stakes races, 11 Graded stakes, and 8 Grade 1s. He owns stakes victories on dirt, turf, and synthetic surfaces, while also scoring wins from 4 ½ furlongs to 1 ¼ miles.

California Chrome hails as the fifth Kentucky Derby winner from his deep female family, which includes Swaps. He’s also line bred to Numbered Account, the dam of Private Account, fourth dam of Super Saver, and direct family of other top sires such as Woodman. California Chrome has seven strains of the great foundation mare, La Troienne.
