California Chrome LLC, which includes majority owners Perry and Denise Martin and Taylor Made Stallions, announced the California Chrome Breeders’ Cup Sweepstakes Oct. 12.
The sweepstakes offers racing fans an opportunity to win a prize that includes two Breeders’ Cup tickets and two round-trip commercial flights from anywhere in the continental United States to Los Angeles to attend the 2016 World Championships at Santa Anita Park.
All proceeds from the contest will benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research, one of the nation’s leading cancer research funding organizations.
“With a portion of California Chrome ’s earnings already being donated to The V Foundation, we also wanted to hold other special events to raise charitable donations for the foundation,” said Duncan Taylor, president and chief executive officer at Taylor Made. “We believe this sweepstakes gives everyone a chance to win an experience of a lifetime with California Chrome, while generating donations to help continue funding cancer research."
To enter the sweepstakes, visit www.worldsrichestracehorse.com/sweepstakes.html and make a donation to The V Foundation. Minimum donation amount to enter the sweepstakes is $25, and for each increment of $25, the contestant receives another 25 entries.
Contestants may enter the sweepstakes multiple times, with 100% of the donations going to The V Foundation to fund cancer research. The deadline to donate is Oct. 24 at 11:59 p.m. EST. The contest winner will be selected and notified Oct. 25.
