Horse Finally Wins Triple Crown

A horse finally won the Triple Crown for the first time since the 1970s. A few days ago, the horse American Pharaoh won the Belmont Stakes to finish the Triple Crow, which if you don’t know, consists of winning the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes races in a single year. Of course, horse racing is a pretty anachronistic sport and I don’t actually know anyone who regularly follows it. The sport has had more than its fair share of controversy in recent years, since horses breaking legs and being euthanized on the track is not an unusual occurrence.
