One of the longest dry spells in sporting history, and we are not talking about the Chicago Cubs and the World Series, is over as American Pharoah won the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown. It is the first time in 37 years a horse has earned all three jewels. American Pharoah joins Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed as one of 12 Triple Crown winners in the history of thoroughbred racing.
American Pharaoh and other contenders prepare for the 147th running of the Belmont Stakes, taking place on Saturday, June 6, 2015. American Pharaoh is in contention for the Triple Crown. The last horse to win the Triple Crown was Affirmed, after beating Alydar in 1978.
