    2014 Belmont Stakes Recap

    The Triple Crown drought in American thoroughbred racing will continue for a 36th year as heavy betting favorite California Chrome, the winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, was never much of a factor in the 146th running of the Belmont Stakes, finishing tied for fourth.

    Lightly raced Tonalist, who didn't run in either the Derby or Preakness, was the victor, edging Commissioner by a head. Tonalist ran the 1 1/2 miles in 2:28.52 and paid $20.40, $9.60 and $7. It was the second straight win for Tonalist, who also took the Grade 2 Peter Pan Stakes at Belmont Park on May 10. Commissioner, who also skipped the Derby and Preakness, returned $23.20 and $13.20, while Medal Count was another length back in third and paid $13.20 to show

    California Chrome, who had been on a six-race winning streak, is the 13th horse since the last Triple Crown winner, Affirmed in 1978, to win the Kentucky Derby and Preakness and then fail in the Belmont. It's the longest-ever drought for horse racing to not have a Triple Crown winner. California Chrome suffered a minor injury in the race, with his right front foot stepped on by Matterhorn early on in the Belmont, and won't run again until the fall.
