Tonalist wins Belmont Stakes

Updated: Saturday, June 7 2014, 07:18 PM EDT

NEW YORK -- California Chrome has failed in his bid to win the first Triple Crown in 36 years.


Official results of the race are pending, but California Chrome finished well behind the lead. Tonalist crossed first.


The result means the longest drought without a Triple Crown champion in history is extended.


California Chrome and jockey Victor Espinoza lost the 1½-mile race on a hot day at Belmont Park, where tens of thousands of fans were packed in hoping to see history. It was not to be, leaving Affirmed as the most recent Triple Crown winner in 1978.
