Triple Crown at Stake - and Lost

. Saturday, June 7

The Triple Crown's final leg runs today, and it hasn't been won since Affirmed took the crown 30 years ago. With fatal injuries tarnishing the sport of late, the rallying, feel-good power of the potential history-making event is muted. Casino Drive was scratched because of a stone bruise, and Big Brown seems to have little competition today. We'll have to see how it goes.

Update: Big Brown did not win the Belmont. He came in last.
