California Chrome had his final major workout for Saturday’s Grade II, $300,000 San Felipe Stakes for 3-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles, going five furlongs Sunday morning at Los Alamitos in 1:00.40.

With regular rider Victor Espinoza aboard, the California-bred son of Lucky Pulpit skipped over a wet-fast surface in 24.40 and 37 flat.  Trainer Art Sherman had the easy winner of his last two stakes against Cal-breds galloping out six furlongs in 1:13 1/5.

“He looked good,” Sherman said. “In light of all the weather we’ve had recently, everything went perfect. We’ll bring him to Santa Anita Wednesday, he’ll school Thursday and Friday and run Saturday.”

Trainer John Sadler said Sham Stakes runner-up Kristo would have his final major work tomorrow for the San Felipe.
