Kentucky Derby winner headed to Preakness

California Chrome headed to Preakness

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Art Sherman has never had a big operation or wealthy clients who infused cash and horses into his stable.

But the 77-year-old trainer can say he won the Kentucky Derby.

A day after California Chrome raced to a 1 3/4 -length victory as the 5-2 favorite in the Derby, Sherman and his star horse received a stream of visitors at Churchill Downs.

Sherman said he woke up Sunday and reminded himself that he had won the Derby, a feeling he said is “pretty cool.”

Now the oldest trainer to win the Derby and his horse are headed to Baltimore for the Preakness in two weeks, the next step on the Triple Crown trail.

It will be Sherman’s first trip to Maryland since 1959, when he was a jockey.
