BELMONT, NEW YORK – California Chrome comes up short in a bid to win the Triple Crown.
The racehorse that won the Preakness and Kentucky Derby crossed the finish line well behind the lead in the Belmont Stakes in New York.
Tonalist won the Belmont.
A win by California Chrome would have completed the first Triple Crown in 36 years.
That leaves Affirmed as the most recent Triple Crown winner in 1978.
