"He’s coming back and he’s going to me which I'm sure he’ll be real happy about," Art Sherman confirmed Sunday morning from the Del Mar stable area.
The "he" of reference is 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner California Chrome, whose recent bone bruise injury had triggered speculation that his racing career might be over. But Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky purchased the minority ownership share of Steve Coburn early last week and announced Saturday that the California-bred son of Lucky Pulpit, who is recuperating at Taylor Made, would be aimed for a return to racing next year.
