Two weekends to go before California Chrome attempts to be the first horse to take the Triple Crown in 36 years, and the chestnut colt is as "cool as a cucumber."

The local favorite was unfazed Friday by a chance encounter with a opossum that visited the Triple Crown hopeful during preparations at Belmont Park.

Assistant trainer Alan Sherman wasn't surprised by the Chrome's demeanor.

Coyotes have regularly appeared at the their home track in Los Alamitos so the opossum was not a big deal.
