New shooter in Belmont mix to take on Chrome 

NEW YORK—California Chrome has galloped again in preparations for the Belmont Stakes, while a new contender trained by Todd Pletcher has emerged for the last leg of the Triple Crown.

The colt ran two miles Monday, with assistant trainer Alan Sherman saying the Triple Crown hopeful is training well for the 1 ½-mile race June 7. No horse has swept the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont since 1978.

California Chrome is to have his lone official workout next weekend.

Pletcher says Matterhorn could run the Belmont. The colt was fourth in the Peter Pan on May 10 and was recently sold to new ownership. Pletcher already has a Belmont starter in Commissioner, runner-up in the Peter Pan.

Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott says Matuszak is under consideration for the Belmont. The colt has just one win and is coming off a second-place finish in the Federico Tesio in Maryland.
