Tonalist wins 2014 Belmont Stakes; California Chrome fails in Triple Crown bid: Twitter reacts

The 146th running of the Belmont Stakes, the last leg of the Triple Crown, took place on Saturday afternoon and when the more than one-mile race was over, it was Tonalist that took the win, holding off the Triple Crown bid by California Chrome and jockey Victor Espinoza.

Once the race was over, you could see the disappointment from not being able to see history throughout the social media universe.

So we still don’t have a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. On to next year.
