California Chrome LLC, which includes majority owners Perry and Denise Martin and Taylor Made Stallions, have announced the California Chrome Breeders’ Cup Sweepstakes, offering racing fans an opportunity to win a trip of a lifetime, including two Breeders’ Cup tickets and two round-trip commercial flights from anywhere in the continental United States to Los Angeles, Calif., to attend the 2016 Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita. All proceeds from the Sweepstakes will benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research, one of the nation’s leading cancer research funding organizations.

“With a portion of California Chrome’s earnings already being donated to The V Foundation, we also wanted to hold other special events to raise charitable donations for the Foundation,” said Duncan Taylor, President and CEO at Taylor Made. “We believe this sweepstakes gives everyone a chance to win an experience of a lifetime with California Chrome while generating donations to help continue funding cancer research.”
