The V Foundation for Cancer Research, one of the nation’s leading cancer research funding organizations, and majority owners Perry & Denise Martin and Taylor Made Stallions are pleased to announce that California Chrome, LLC will launch a new partnership in the fight against cancer and run in support of The V Foundation throughout the remainder of his scheduled racing career. He is currently pointed towards the $200,000 San Diego Handicap (G2) on July 23, and the $1 million Pacific Classic (G1) on August 20, which will both be held at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racetrack in Del Mar, California.
In addition to a portion of California Chrome’s future race earnings to support The V Foundation, the California Chrome team will also hold other special events to raise charitable donations for The V Foundation. The first such event will be following the San Diego Handicap and will auction California Chrome’s blinkers, Jockey Victor Espinoza’s silks worn in the race as well as a co-branded Chrome and V Foundation saddle blanket worn during the horse’s final workout at Del Mar. One hundred percent of the proceeds of the auction will be donated to The V Foundation.
