Jerardi: California Chrome sitting on a big one


When I read that Art Sherman said that California Chrome is the best he’s been since he’s had him, I wondered what might be possible in the San Pasqual Stakes at Santa Anita, knowing that this race is definitely not the goal. They are going after the $10 million Dubai World Cup, not the $200,000 San Pasqual. Still, the trainer’s comments and the workout pattern, especially the six-furlong work in 1:10, hint that California Chrome could deliver a huge performance right off the bench.
