California Chrome will race in Southern California for the rest of the year, trainer says

In a move sure to please Southern California race fans, California Chrome trainerArt Sherman has laid out a schedule that would have North America’s all-time leading money-winner running twice at Santa Anita and twice at Del Mar this year.

And he may also run the horse as a 6-year-old.

“Right now, we’re pointing him to the July 23 San Diego Handicap,” Sherman told The Times. “That’s just before the Pacific Classic [on Aug. 20 at Del Mar].”
