California Chrome, Kentucky Derby Winner, Settles in at Pimlico

Updated: Wednesday, May 14 2014, 06:54 PM EDT

California Chrome arrived at Pimlico Monday and on Tuesday morning was taken around the one-mile course.

"He jogged and he was great," said assistant trainer Alan Sherman. "He stood out there for a while, just looked around and took it all in. He's a really curious horse. He likes to look around a lot and check out the surroundings. He was good. He was really good."

The Kentucky Derby winner has been stationed in Stall 40, traditionally the Pimlico home of the Derby winner.

When asked what the worst possible scenario might be, Alan Sherman said, "Losing."

"If they go too slow in front, he'll take it right to them and push the horses in front of him," Sherman said. "If they are going fast in front, he can just sit off the paceā€¦That's the good thing about him - that he doesn't have one style of running. He's pretty push-button. If you ask him he'll do it."
