NEW YORK (AP) — California Chrome has galloped two miles at Belmont Park, with the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner preparing for the final leg of the Triple Crown.

Assistant trainer Alan Sherman says California Chrome was especially eager Tuesday, noticeably tugging at him in the barn and then exercise rider Willie Delgado during the gallop.

Delgado says it was hard to resist letting the chestnut colt go faster. He says California Chrome seems to like the track’s deep and sandy surface.

Sherman says the colt is scheduled for his only official timed workout before the Belmont on Saturday.

California Chrome is set to run in the 1 1/2-mile race on June 7. No horse has swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont since Affirmed in 1978.
