American Pharoah - Triple Crown!!!

American History! Pharoah Ends Triple Crown Drought At Belmont Stakes

At long last, the Triple Crown drought is over.

American Pharoah led all the way to win the Belmont Stakes by 5 ½ lengths on Saturday, becoming the first horse in 37 years to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes — one of the sporting world’s rarest feats.

...The bay colt with the unusually short tail defeated seven rivals in the grueling 1 1/2-mile race, covering the distance in 2:26.65 to end the longest stretch without a Triple Crown champion in history.

Here's video:

Thirty-seven years without a Triple Crown champion is a long time.

It took American Pharoah 2:26.65 minutes to earn a place in sports history forever.
