California Chrome: Sherman To Focus On ‘Fundamental’ Schooling Before Pegasus

Watching his son and assistant, Alan, lead California Chrome around the Gulfstream Park shedrow shortly before 7 Sunday morning, trainer Art Sherman continued to marvel at the strength and energy of his newly crowned two-time Horse of the Year.

“I was going to walk him myself if they didn't show up,” he said. “It's a good thing I didn't; he might have lifted me right off the ground.”

California Chrome was happy and enthusiastic on his Sunday stroll, coming a day after he put in the last timed workout of a storied career that has made him the richest horse in North American racing history. He is scheduled to make his final start in the inaugural and innovative $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) Jan. 28 at Gulfstream.

“He looks good. His legs are tight and cool, and he's holding his weight good,” Sherman said. “He's just an unbelievable horse. I've had a lot of horses all my life and been around some good ones, and he's by far the best I've ever had.”

Late Saturday evening at Gulfstream, California Chrome became only the second winner of Horse of the Year honors in non-consecutive years since the Eclipse Awards were founded in 1971, having earned the top honor following his Kentucky Derby (G1) and Preakness (G1)-winning season of 2014.

Also selected the Champion Older Male of 2016, California Chrome follows in the footsteps of Hall of Fame gelding John Henry, named Horse of the Year in 1981 and 1984. Chrome won seven of eight starts including the Dubai World Cup (G1), Pacific Classic (G1) and Awesome Again (G1) and nearly $8.2 million in purse earnings in 2016.

“I'm just so happy that everybody voted for him. It's been quite a journey,” Sherman said. “We've been all over the world and it's hard to explain when you look back and see all the good times you've had and all the good people you've met throughout our journey. It's been a hell of a ride, I can tell you.”

California Chrome's only loss last year came in the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) where he was second to 3-year-old champion Arrogate, his main rival in the 1 1/8-mile Pegasus. Following the race he will begin his stud career at Taylor Made Farm.

“He'll just jog and gallop into the race,” Sherman said. “We'd like to school him in the paddock one day because it's a little different setup than he's seen and we'll stand him in the gate, all the fundamental things we do going toward a race.”

Dual Eclipse Award-Winner Tepin ‘Moving Very Well’ In Palm Meadows Workout

The morning after celebrating an Eclipse Award in back-to-back seasons for outstanding female turf horse, it was business-as-usual for the 6-year-old Tepin at Palm Meadows Training Center. According to bloodhorse.com, the daughter of Bernstein recorded a bullet half-mile turf work in :474/5 for trainer Mark Casse, in preparation for a possible start in Tampa Bay Downs' G3 Endeavour Stakes on Feb. 11.

“It's amazing. When she's by herself, you have to watch out. She'll trip and not pay attention,” said Casse, explaining the reason he'd worked Tepin in company. “When she focuses, she puts it in a different mode. She was moving very well, and she got something out of it.”

At this point, Casse said Tepin is approximately “60-40” to make the Endeavour. Owner Robert Masterson has plans to send his champion mare to Dubai in March for the G1 Dubai Turf, but told Casse that she would continue to run throughout the year even if the team couldn't have her ready for that overseas journey.

“After a good discussion, we decided as long as she's happy and healthy, they want to run her another year,” said Casse.
