Breeders' Cup Classic runner-up California Chrome has been scheduled for a half-mile breeze next Saturday at his home base of Los Alamitos, according to the Daily Racing Form.
“He came out of it good. He's a remarkable horse,” said trainer Art Sherman. “I'll give him an easy half next Saturday. I've got to do something with him. He's pretty strong.”
The 5-year-old son of Lucky Pulpit is scheduled to make his next start in the Jan. 28 Pegasus World Cup, before retiring to stud duty at Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky. While Sherman has wavered on whether or not California Chrome would receive a prep race before the Pegasus, he does intend to send the gallant chestnut to Gulfstream Park well in advance of the race so that he can work over the surface.
