Art and his son, Alan, accept Horse of the Year for California Chrome Jan. 21

Art Sherman's life is bookended with the remarkable story of two Kentucky Derby winners that have him in common.

First, there was Swaps in 1955 when Sherman was just a teenager literally sleeping next to the horse on a cross-country train ride. Then, nearly 60 years later, California Chrome came along, one of the most popular Derby winners of all time. His Derby victory made Sherman the oldest trainer to ever win the race (age 77).

In this episode of Around the Track, Sherman shares some of his stories from the “old school” and of course, the journey he took with Chrome.

    LOL A type-o. Sham was a great race horse born in the wrong year.

    Great story about Mr. Sherman

  • whirlaway

    Great to have the experience with two special horses that both were Calif Boys. Swaps
    was quite the horse with a very impressive record also. Really a great experience for Art as a young man, he had no idea that another horse years down the line named California Chrome
    would take him for another great life experience.

    Wow another great interview. As a Chromie it was not just his rags to riches story that got me interested in him, horse racing and to the track to watch him. He loved to run and there was a joy and exuberance that he exuded when he raced. Watching him run as a fan I got to share in that joy. I see the same thing in Winx when she runs. There are some horses who just love racing and how lucky are we to share in their rides.
