California Chrome ‘Perfect’ for Dubai World Cup

DUBAI, U.A.E. (Mar. 22, 2016) -- After flying from California to Dubai, trainer Art Sherman had trouble sleeping, which allowed him to get to the barn and see California Chrome earlier than anticipated. Shortly after 2 a.m. local time March 22, Sherman showed up at the 5-year-old's stall and fed him a couple of cookies.

In addition to the colt's strong appetite, Sherman liked what he saw in advance of the Dubai World Cup Sponsored by Emirates Airline (UAE-I) March 26.
