KENTUCKY DERBY UPDATE


CALIFORNIA CHROME (1st) – The chestnut colt California Chrome carved his name in the history books Saturday afternoon at Churchill Downs, earning himself the right to sleep in until 6 o’clock Sunday morning at his Barn 20 new Kentucky home.

“He’s fine,” reported the newest oldest trainer (77) to win a Kentucky Derby, Art Sherman, to an early bird gathering of media types Sunday at the barn. “He left just a handful of grain in his tub last night, but that’s all. His appetite was good. He got a little tired, but not too bad. Victor (jockey Victor Espinoza) told me yesterday that he did get a bit tired on him at the end; that he eased him a bit that last 70 yards. He said he didn’t ask him for too much thinking about saving something for the next one, for the Preakness.”

Kentucky Derby & Kentucky Oaks Update: Tuesday, April 29


KENTUCKY DERBY UPDATE

CALIFORNIA CHROME (No. 1) – Trainer Art Sherman, coming on strong despite running on very little sleep, and California Chrome, coming on strong, too, despite not being allowed to do much running, made the Churchill Downs scene Tuesday morning and proved big hits.

Both trainer and horse had jetted in from their Southern California headquarters Monday and both were ready to get on about the business of showing what the likely Kentucky Derby favorite does five days in front of America’s foremost horse race. Wearing a simple green saddle cloth (his Derby cloth was back in the shop for some repairs) and with regular exercise rider Willy Delgado aboard, the chestnut colt started trackside from Barn 20 at approximately 6:45 a.m. with Art’s son and assistant – Alan Sherman – guiding him on a shank through traffic and the five-furlong gap.

KENTUCKY DERBY UPDATE – Saturday, April 26


CALIFORNIA CHROME (No. 1) – “Very good. Exactly what I needed for the horse. He doesn’t need much now. He’s ready. I just wanted to put some air into him. He’s happy and fresh. That’s the way I want to keep him for this race.”

Trainer Art Sherman had nothing but good things to say following a four-furlong drill by his likely Kentucky Derby favorite Saturday morning at his training headquarters at Los Alamitos Race Course in Southern California. The chestnut California-bred had completed an “easy” half mile in :48.20 with a gallop out in 1:01 under regular rider Victor Espinoza.
