California Chrome Trainer wins 2016 Big Sport of Turfdom awardThe Turf Publicists of America (TPA) announced Nov. 22 that Art Sherman, trainer of champion and all-time North American earnings leader California Chrome, will be honored with the 2016 Big Sport of Turfdom Award—which recognizes a person or group of people who enhance coverage of Thoroughbred racing through cooperation with media and racing publicists. 
Sherman won in a vote determined by the nearly 150 active members of the TPA, a trade organization of Thoroughbred racing publicists and marketing executives.
"I am so delighted and honored to be among the people that have won this award, a who's who of racing," Sherman said. "I've always tried to be accommodating to the press and even anyone that asks me for an autograph. It's for the betterment of the game. Anything for racing."
Under Sherman's care, California Chrome has won 15 of 25 starts while amassing $14,452,650 in earnings across four seasons. As a 3-year old, the son of Lucky Pulpit   won the 2014 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) and Preakness Stakes (gr. I) en route to Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male honors. This season, the 5-year-old chestnut continued to add to his illustrious resume with wins in three group or grade I races, including the $10 million Dubai World Cup Sponsored by Emirates Airline, and was second in the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I).
