California Chrome heading to Pimlico early

LOUSIVILLE, Ky. - Derby winner California Chrome will be flown to Maryland next Monday, May 12, after trainer Art Sherman asked to send the colt on a flight from Louisville to Maryland earlier than the traditional Wednesday before the race.

Buddy Fife, the Louisville-based booking agent for the Tex Sutton Forwarding Co., said Monday that the equine charter-flight company is firming up plans to have two flights.

“We’re going to accommodate Art and have a flight on Monday and Wednesday of Preakness week,” said Fife. “Whoever wants to go with the Derby winner will go Monday and the others will go Wednesday.”
