First Foal for California Chrome
The first foal of dual US Horse of the Year California Chrome was born at Calumet Farm in Kentucky on Saturday. Taylor Made Farm, where California Chrome stands, reported that the foal is a colt out of millionaire race mare Pay the Man, a daughter of Bernstein who won 21 stakes races during a decorated racing career. California Chrome (Lucky Pulpit-Love the Chase, by Not for Love) retired in 2017 with a record of 16 wins from 27 starts for US$14,746,218 in prize money, making him the richest North American racehorse in history at the time. Arrogate has since claimed that title. Among California Chrome's wins were 7 at Group One level, including the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes & Dubai World Cup.
