California Chrome arrives at Pimlico

BALTIMORE (AP) - Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome has arrived at Pimlico Race Course, where he will try to keep his Triple Crown bid alive in Saturday's Preakness.

After being transported on a chartered flight from Kentucky, California Chrome settled into prestigious Stall 40 at Pimlico.

Stall 40 is the traditional home to the Kentucky Derby winner. Listed above the stall is a list of horses that have stayed there, including Secretariat and Seattle Slew.

Alan Sherman, assistant trainer of California Chrome, says, "It's awesome. I was looking at the list of horses that have been in that stall. It's quite unbelievable."

Sherman says the horse had no problems with the flight and is ready to resume his bid at becoming the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
