We’re proud of our U.S. Olympians for bringing home the most Gold, Silver and Bronze from Rio this year. It got us thinking about who’s brought in the most gold in horse racing and that’s 2014 Derby winner and Horse of the Year California Chrome.
California Chrome became the highest earning Thoroughbred in history with a total of $12 million in earning when he won the Dubai World Cup this past March, surpassing Curlin who had held the record with $10.5 in earnings.
California Chrome could add more to his earning’s this weekend. He’s running this Saturday in the 1$ million Pacific Classic at Del Mar Racetrack in his home state of California.
