California Chrome ridden by Victor Espinoza sprinted from the starting gates, blew away the field and coasted to victory in the $1,000,000 TVG Pacific Classic at Del Mar Racetrack on Saturday, August 20.

The potential trouble for Chrome, running out of post position No. 1, never materialized in a field of nine that included Beholder, last year's Pacific Classic run-away champion and Dortmund who lost by just a half-length to Chrome four weeks ago in the San Diego Handicap on the same track.

The 26th TVG Pacific Classic was California Chrome's fifth win in five races for 2016. The 1 1/4 mile race was covered in 2:00.13 for a five-length victory. Chrome is next slated to run in the Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita Park on October 1.
