California Chrome’s end of season target is Breeders’ Cup: trainer says

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome lost another attempt to grab the Triple Crown by losing the $1-million Grade II Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing to rival racehorse Bayern; but his trainer Art Sherman said he would make yet another attempt later this year.

Sherman said the Breeders' Cup Classic was still very much California Chrome's end of season target.

After the disappointing defeat, Sherman said, "With the race under his belt, he'll be a lot stronger and we'll train him over at Los Alamitos. We'll bring him home and get him ready for the Breeders' Cup."

The 2014 Breeders' Cup is scheduled to take place at Santa Anita Park, in Arcadia, California on October 31 and November 1, 2014.

In the recently held Grade II Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing, Bayern earned a record five-&-three-quarter length victory a record time of 1:46.96. The second and third spots were grabbed by Tapiture and Candy Boy, respectively.

Bayern is owned by Indian native Kaleem Shah, who now lives in Virginia. His father was a trainer in India, where he won the Indian Triple Crown, while his uncle won two Indian Derbies. Bayern, which is among his speediest horses in class of 3-year-olds, won for the fifth time in nine career starts.
