NEW YORK (CBSLA.com/AP) -- California Chrome has jogged for the first time on the Belmont Park track as the colt prepares to try to win the Triple Crown.

The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner jogged 1 1/2 miles on Wednesday with exercise rider Willie Delgado aboard. The colt slowed to a walk for the final sixteenth of a mile.

Assistant trainer Alan Sherman says California Chrome is surprising him with how quickly he is bouncing back from his last two big races. Sherman says the chestnut colt with four white feet is feeling great.

“He was dragging me around,” said the assistant Alan. “He was feeling really good. He’s just a beast!”

Sherman says California Chrome will start galloping on Thursday, which will provide a better idea of how he’s handling the deep, sandy surface.

California Chrome is set to run in the 1 1/2-mile Belmont Stakes on June 7 in his bid to sweep the Triple Crown for the first time in 36 years.
