Sherman and Coburn arrive at Belmont

NEW YORK (AP) - The trainer and co-owner of California Chrome have reunited with their horse at Belmont Park days before he attempts to win racing's first Triple Crown in 36 years.

Trainer Art Sherman and co-owners Steve and Carolyn Coburn arrived at the track on Monday to see the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner. Sherman had not seen the chestnut colt since his Preakness victory on May 17. He returned to his Southern California base after that race, leaving California Chrome in the care of his son and assistant Alan Sherman.

Sherman says he knows the colt is all right because he tried to bite the trainer, thinking Sherman had his favorite cookies in his hand. He didn't, but a groom produced the treats for California Chrome.
