The Drought is Finally Over!

June 6, 2015 will forever go down in history as the day that American Pharoah won the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown, the first horse to do so since Affirmed in 1978. It’s been a long time coming, but it was worth the wait.

I was especially excited to watch this Belmont because I didn’t think I’d ever witness a Triple Crown victory. I was born after Affirmed’s victory and so have only heard stories of past Triple Crown winners and how impressive their victories were. So frequently, too, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner would come so close to winning the Belmont only to fade at the crucial moment. But not American Pharoah.

I never thought I’d see a Triple Crown, but I’m so glad I was wrong about that. It was a privilege to witness such a momentous occasion in horse racing history.
