ELMONT, N.Y. - The wait for a Triple Crown winner will last at least another year after California Chrome failed in a bid to win the Belmont Stakes.
Tonalist was the winner of the 146th running of the Belmont Stakes Saturday evening, besting a field of 10 other horses, including the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner.
California Chrome finished fourth in a dead heat.
He was bidding to become the 12th Triple Crown winner after winning the first two legs of the race.
There has not been a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
