California Chrome came up short in the colt’s attempt to win the illustrious Triple Crown, as Tonalist won the 146th Belmont Stakes in Elmont, N.Y. California Chrome finished tied for fourth.

With Tonalist’s victory, it now means that Affirmed is still the last horse to win the Triple Crown back in 1978.
