California Chrome on target for Belmont Stakes

Updated:
NEW YORK -

Art Sherman got his first glimpse of California Chrome in action in two weeks, and the trainer liked what he saw.

Sherman arrived in New York on Monday afternoon and watched his Triple Crown contender gallop at Belmont Park on Tuesday morning. It was the first time Sherman had observed the chestnut colt since he captured the Preakness.

Sherman says California Chrome is "an amazing horse."

The Kentucky Derby and the Preakness winner will try for the first Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978 on Saturday in the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes.
