Chrome Visit in Store for Sherman

by TDN
Trainer Art Sherman is expected to travel to Newmarket next week to check in on his dual Classic winner and Horse of the Year California Chrome (Lucky Pulpit), according to trainer Rae Guest, who is currently housing the 4-year-old.

California Chrome’s chief European target is the 10-furlong G1 Prince of Wales’s S. at Royal Ascot in June, and he could take in the G1 Lockinge S. over a mile at Newbury May 16.

California Chrome arrived at Guest’s yard via Dubai after finishing second in the G1 Dubai World Cup.

“He’s in great form and it’s a pleasure to have him,” said Guest. “We are just getting him up to racing speed, but he seems to be enjoying his time with us.

Art Sherman is going to be here by the end of next week, I think, and we’ll give the horse a proper gallop and see where we go from there.”
