California Chrome Works Easy at Los Alamitos

On his day, at his home track, and a bit out of his normal workout routine,California Chrome   still gave trainer Art Sherman just what he wanted Sept. 10 at Los Alamitos Race Course.

With his normal 5:30 a.m. work time moved back to 7:30 to accommodate a host of fans out for California Chrome Day in the City of Cypress, the 2014 Horse of the Year covered five furlongs in 1:00 4/5.

Sherman watched through his binoculars from the Los Alamitos grandstand, because his normal perch on the patio at Schwanie's at the Gap was overflowing with "Chromies," but the trainer liked what he saw.
