1. He was bred and is owned by DAP racing, which stands for “Dumb-Ass Partners” Racing.

2. His loyal followers have major West Coast street cred and are called the “Chromies”.

3. He has his own country music song titled “Bring it on Home, Chrome”.

7. He had a temporary possum workout buddy at the Belmont who now don’s its own twitter account @DAPossum1.
