Duncan Taylor, president and CEO of Taylor Made Farm in Jessamine County, told the Blood-Horse the price was “fair, maybe even a little lower than fair.”
California Chrome, winner of the 2014 Kentucky Derby and North America’s richest racehorse, joins a Taylor Made stallion roster that also includes Mshawish ($20,000), Graydar ($12,500), Astrology ($6,500) and Northern Afleet ($6,500).
California Chrome is coming off a runner-up finish in Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Classic, which was won by Arrogate. The 5-year-old is preparing for what is expected to be his final career race, the Pegasus World Cup on Jan. 28.
Never miss a local story.
The Breeders’ Cup defeat was the first for California Chrome in 2016 after six consecutive victories.
