California Chrome visits paddock at Belmont Park

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -  California Chrome has visited the Belmont Park paddock and galloped his usual two miles in preparation for his bid to win horse racing's first Triple Crown in 36 years.

The chestnut colt walked around the paddock Thursday before standing in a stall for five minutes so he can become familiar with the spot where he will be saddled for the Belmont Stakes on June 7.

Assistant trainer Alan Sherman says California Chrome will visit the paddock multiple times over the next week before he gallops. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner is to visit the starting gate Friday and complete his only timed workout before the Belmont on Saturday.

A field of 10 is shaping up for the 1 1/2-mile Belmont.
