    Default Triple Crown finally won!

    American Pharaoh broke the 37 year old streak and won the Belmont wire-to-wire. I was 7 years old when the last Triple Crown winner was crowned, I was worried it would never happen again. It felt good for history to finally happen.

    Great race, he would have beaten every other triple crown winner in the Belmont today except Secretariat.

    ^ I was thinking the same thing. American Pharaoh was exciting to watch but Secretariat was breathtaking.

    I was happy to see it. Living in the horse racing capital we've been waiting for this moment. The Kentucky Derby museum is already planning a triple crown exhibit for him.

    That was one of the coolest things in sports I have ever seen.

    I was very happy for the Pharoah. What a great run into history. I love majestic horses and he certainly is one.

    I was feeling nostalgic and for those of you that are too young to remember Secretariat, here is his Belmont run. It's still one of the most remarkable things in the history of sports.

    To put it in perspective, he would have beaten Pharoah by 15 legnths.

    15 lengths? Holy cow and American Pharaoh was lightning fast. Thanks for the vid; I've got goosebumps all over again. Did you watch the next video? Thanks for making me cry.
