Chrome for Days

While I’m not someone who historically follows horse racing, like any good horse crazy lady, I definitely follow the big ones.

Like for instance.

This one.

California Chrome

A few recent accolades include:

  • No. 1 in this Monday’s release of the NTRA Top Thoroughbred Poll. (He collected 37 of 38 first-place votes cast by a national media panel.)
  • He won a second prep race and the 2016 Dubai World Cup, becoming the all-time leading North American horse in earnings won
  • He won the 2014 Secretariat Vox Populi Award
  • His Kentucky Derby win was awarded theNTRA “Moment of the Year”
  • He won Eclipse Awards for American Champion Three-Year-Old Male Horse and American Horse of the Year.

But my favorite Chrome fact?

He is completely cookie motivated and soft as silk.

I was starstruck.

  1. Very cool, a moment you won’t forget 🙂 I definitely don’t and won’t forget meeting Rachel Alexandra! Hopefully we all get to meet more horse celebrities/

  2. I wanted to go see him so bad. I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t. But seeing as he will be retiring to Taylor Made and I’m only 2 hours away I’m sure our time will come to get to see IRL the super cool rags to riches CC.
