California Chrome has banked $4,042,650 from 15 career starts with eight wins.
Del Mar, CA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner California Chrome posted a workout Sunday morning over Del Mar's turf course ahead of a start in Saturday's $300,000 Hollywood Derby.
The 3-year-old chestnut colt, trained by Art Sherman, worked four furlongs on the Jimmy Durante turf course in 52 seconds with his regular jockey Victor Espinoza.
"I was satisfied with the work," Sherman said at a post-workout news conference. "Victor said (California Chrome) didn't know if he was going to work or gallop because he'd never been on the grass before. But Victor said he felt smooth underneath him and that was my main concern."
