California Chrome was recently showcased at Taylor Made for fans, media, and anyone who is intrigued by racing. It was my first glimpse of the chestnut colt since watching him win the Kentucky Derby over a year ago, and he is wonderful to photograph. He has since left Taylor Made to go back into training, but will return as a stallion when his racing career concludes. Below are a few of my images of him from that day and a few other photos from Taylor Made. This event was a bit of a preview of how fan-friendly many more of the farms are trying to become with the launch of Horse Country, Inc. It was a wonderful precursor to that.
The star of the hour, California Chrome
Not to be outdone, Graydar displays his class as well.
The visit concluded with seeing some broodmares, foals, and yearlings.
