California Chrome, winner of the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, has suffered a cannon bone bruise, Fox Sports reports. The injury will likely keep him out of racing through the end of the year. He missed training due to the bruise and could not race at Royal Ascot or Arlington Park.
Hersh posted the following on Twitter:
Spoke to Art Sherman. California Chrome likely out rest of year with cannon-bone bruise. Possible he doesn’t race again if retired to stud.
