California Chrome was the horse that received the award Horse of the Year after successfully winning the first two legs of the Triple Crown followed by the Saturday night horse of the year award. The Kentucky Derby and the Preakness victories were the key to the trophy that the Chrome received. The young horse has experienced an amazing year and has won two of the major tournaments in his second year of professional racing horse.
His Co-owner Steve Coburn commented that his has been an incredible journey with ups and ups, and not a single down. He managed to make an outstanding run to all the races that he participated, and managed to convert the brilliant runs into victories on the most important races therefore he secured the Horse of the Year award before anyone knew about it.
Six wins in nine races is the record that propelled him to the top of the racing horses’ list and what brought him the award despite the fact that there were many horses that were close to that, and few even better. His two trophies, one in the Eclipse for three year old male horses followed by the Preakness win at Breeders’ Cup Classic. Both of these wins cost $10,500 and were good cash for the owner of the California Chrome.
Just before winning the third tournament to become the first horse since 1978 to win the Triple Crown, he had a not so impressive race at the Belemonth Stakes and finished fourth, unfortunately vanishing and collapsing his chances to win the Triple Crown this year. But be sure that this same horse called California Chrome will go for that title next year as this is his second year of competition having only three years behind him.
An outstanding run in the Eclipse had his teammate horse Javier Castellano who had an amazing year as well, but not as good as the California Chrome. Their trainings are alike and almost all the races they’ve participated together were close wins for the one or the other.

Close Hatches a winner of the older female horse award,
Work All Week is the winner of male sprinter horse,
