Preakness Champion California Chrome Leaves Pimlico
Updated: Tuesday, May 20 2014, 01:08 PM EDT
Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome left Pimlico Race Course at 6:14 a.m. Tuesday morning to travel to Elmont, NY.
Chrome will get a shot at becoming Thoroughbred racing's 12th Triple Crown champion in the 146th running of the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes (G1) June 7 at Belmont Park.
"He looks great," assistant trainer Alan Sherman said before the California Chrome boarded his van. "I just went in there checking on him and he was biting me and pushing me around. He licked the bottom of his feed tub clean, so he ready to go."
Preakness runner-up Ride on Curlin is traveling with California Chrome. Social Inclusion is the only remaining Preakness runner left on the grounds and is expected to depart for New York on Sunday.
"I think he enjoyed the couple days of relaxation," Sherman said of California Chrome. "I probably don't realize how big of a zoo it is going to be up there in New York. I have never gone through anything like this."
