BELMONT, N.Y. – California Chrome arrived at Belmont Park Tuesday morning.
The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner is trying to become horse racing’s twelfth Triple Crown winner.
Affirmed was the last horse to do it 36 years ago. Since then, 12 horses saw their dreams come to an end at Belmont.
California Chrome has won his last six races. The three-year-old will also be allowed to wear his nasal strip for the one and a half mile race on June 7.
