Breyer California Chrome
Breyer Traditional California Chrome is a stunning 1:9 scale model of the beloved racehorse who earned Horse of the Year in 2014 and 2016. This beautiful chestnut stallion with white stockings and big blaze (lots of chrome!) has a loyal fan club as well as an impressive record. California Chrome won the 2014 Kentucky Derby, the 2014 Preakness Stakes, and the 2016 Dubai World Cup. In 2014, many fans hoped to see Chrome win the Belmont Stakes for a Triple Crown victory. Unfortunately, he was stepped on by another horse at the start which resulted in a significant injury to his right front heel. Unaware of the injury, Chrome continued the race and finished 4th. The seven-time Grade I race winner earned over $14,000,000 during his career, making him racing's leading earner of all time.
This handsome Thoroughbred is now retired and at stud. His first foal, a colt, was foaled in January 2018. The Breyer California Chrome Traditional model shows every muscle in mid stride, with an alert expression and wonderful details like the mane and hooves. This is an excellent addition for any Breyer collection and is especially nice for racehorse fans. Put a little chrome in your herd with the beautiful new California Chrome model from Breyer!
