Rex Chapman (@rexchapman) has a horse race named in his honor

Rex Chapman

Bet you didn’t know Kentucky’s very own has a featured race at Santa Anita racetrack named in his honor.  I didn’t either and it runs today. Todays seventh race, the $60,000 Rex Chapman Purse for older fillies and mares at 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course, will serve as the afternoon’s feature at Santa Anita racetrack.  The Chapman is a second condition allowance affair with an optional claiming proviso of $62,500 with a field of nine.
