History made at the Belmont Stakes…bout time.
Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports
American Pharoah became the first horse since 1978 to win the Triple Crown, winning in spectacular fashion.
American Pharoah’s jockey, Victor Espinoza, was riding for his third shot at the Triple Crown. Espinoza lost with California Chrome last year, and again with War Emblem in 2002.
American Pharoah also ends a dubious streak of 13 consecutive horses which entered Belmont with a chance at the Triple Crown but came up short.
