   NEW YORK (AP) -- California Chrome has arrived in New York to begin preparations for his bid to become horse racing's first Triple Crown winner in 36 years.
 
   The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner arrived at Belmont Park by van from Baltimore on Monday.
 
   He was backed off the van and then led into the barn by assistant trainer Alan Sherman. California Chrome walked several laps around the barn before being taken outside to pose for the cameras on the grass and settling into his stall.
 
   California Chrome will start training on the track daily beginning Wednesday.
 
   The 3-year-old colt is set to run in the Belmont Stakes on June 7. He owns a six-race winning streak. No horse has swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont since Affirmed in 1978.
