LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The likely favorite for Saturday's Kentucky Derby has arrived.
California Chrome arrived at Barn 20 on the Churchill Downs backside after a Monday morning flight from his base in California. The horse, trained by Art Sherman, enters the Derby having won six of his 10 career races and recording $1.1 million in earnings. Chrome's exercise rider William Delgado says the horse traveled well and does not expect any issues transitioning to the track at Churchill Downs.
California Chrome will likely be the morning line favorite when it's released on Wednesday afternoon.
