Read on to learn more!
THE RUNDOWN ON THE BELMONT STAKES
American Pharoah raced his heart out in 2015 to earn horse racing’s most prestigious honors, the Triple Crown™ and the unofficial “Grand Slam.” He and jockey Victor Espinoza forever cemented their names in the history books with their clean sweep of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes, which was chosen as The Associated Press’ sports story of 2015. After a 37-year dry spell in which no horse was able to earn the title, the duo was something akin to an unstoppable force as they powered through each leg of the legendary Triple Crown™.
The third jewel of the Triple Crown™ is the Belmont Stakes, held annually in June at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. A clamoring crowd held their breath as the starting gates opened in 2015, uncertain whether American Pharoah could pull off the feat that had seemed impossible for nearly four decades. Celebrities in attendance included the likes of former American president Bill Clinton, baseball superstar and executive Joe Torre, and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones – none of whom wanted to settle for taking in the high-stakes race on television.
It was one of the most exciting moments in the history of horse racing, and the atmosphere was electric as American Pharoah crossed the finish line 5 ½ lengths ahead of the closest contender. It’s difficult to confine the experience to mere words, but if you were there, you know how it felt to be present for such an auspicious occasion.
