California Chrome: Groom Raul Rodriguez
Janill Gilbert stashed this in California
That's a really good, easy horse! Look how calmly he stands for his baths and his leg wraps, and he loads into the starting gates very smoothly too. A lot of famous racehorses were kickers, biters, rearers. I once saw the great gelding John Henry -- who got his name from his habit of ripping steel buckets off the walls of his stall and stomping them flat -- in retirement and he was STILL so dangerous that they didn't let people get close to him.
