The thoroughbred won both the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes in 2014, two-time Horse of the Year honors, and racked up an astounding .7 million in winnings in his career.
As part of a unique project launching today, Taylor Made is opening up the opportunity for the public to vote on a mare for Chrome, and to follow the thoroughbred family's journey through immersive experiences on the farm, along with other stable matters, and eventually buying shares in the foal. Chrome was an underdog and a fan favorite who achieved greatness and fame from humble origins.
“The goal is to increase the amount of fun, joy and inspiration of breeding a horse, without the heaviness and stress of a big investment.” The experience is available to members of “The People's Horse, ” racing's newest club, which was launched by True.
