Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington NY (near Rochester)
This gorgeous horse is a son of California Chrome — our first ever offering by that much loved horse! California Chrome didn’t have many US sired foals, and they rarely come to Finger Lakes, so Miami Chrome presents a special opportunity indeed. Miami Chrome was described as a quiet horse who is very good to handle, and quiet and well behaved under tack and on the track both in the mornings and afternoons. We first saw him in the wash stall, standing perfectly, and then he came out still wet, and even though there was still a morning chill in the air, he stood like a perfect statue for his photos. He seemed proud to show off his exceptional good looks! He displayed very good movement for his jog video, with an even well-balanced trot and a light flowing step with good engagement from behind. Miami Chrome has a very slight old and tight bow on his left front that happened before he ever started racing. It obviously hasn’t impaired his racing soundness in the slightest — he’s been a durable racehorse, running consistently every two to three weeks without missing a dance. He has 6 wins, 6 seconds, and 8 third place finishes in 39 starts with over $110,000 in earnings. He’s very well bred — in addition to being by the great California Chrome, his dam, who’s by Cat Thief, is a graded stakes producer, and his second dam, who’s from the Seattle Slew line, is a graded stakes winner. California Chrome has an ideal pedigree to be an excellent sport horse sire; he is from the Pulpit/AP Indy and Cozzene/Caro sire lines out of a Not for Love mare. We admired a California Chrome son at the RRP this year, who did very well in the show hunters and was an excellent scopey jumper. We can see the same sport horse success in Miami Chrome’s future.
