Tonalist Ends California Chrome’s Triple Crown Bid by Winning Belmont

Tonalist Ends California Chrome’s Triple Crown Bid by Winning Belmont

Travis Lindquist/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Tonalist won the 146th Belmont Stakes, stopping California Chrome from becoming the 12th horse from winning Horse Racing’s prestigious Triple Crown.
Tonalist becomes the fifth horse in the last eight years to win the Belmont after not racing in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes.
California Chrome finished in a tie for fourth as he becomes the 12th horse since 1978 — when Affirmed won it — to win the first two legs of the Triple Crown only to lose the Belmont.
Chrome’s jockey Victor Espinoza was in position to win the Triple Crown in 2002 with War Emblem before coming up short in the Belmont.
Commissioner finished in second and Medal Count came in third.

California Chrome Starts in No. 2 Post at Belmont Stakes

Dylan Buell/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — California Chrome will start from the No. 2 post under Victor Espinoza on Saturday at Belmont Park –  eleven Belmont winners have come out of the No. 2 post.
Chrome is trying to become the 12th Triple Crown winner.
“I thought he looked better now than he did after the Preakness,” trainer Art Sherman said. “I couldn’t believe how much weight he put on. Going on the Triple Crown trail, it’s kind of rough. He’s an amazing horse.”
“He’s [California Chrome] doing outstanding,” asistant trainer Alan Sherman said. “I couldn’t ask for anything more right now. I’m just enjoying the ride he’s put us on.”
This will be the third race for the colt in a five-week span.
Chrome’s biggest opponent, Wicked Strong will start in the No. 9 post.
