Only 2 seconds off of Secretariat’s time (2:24), I think even Secretariat would be proud!  The drought is over.  After 37 years, American Pharoah won the Belmont Stakes powerfully and majestically by taking the lead from the start and holding it till the end. If there was any doubt, his kick at the end let us jump up and down as pulled ahead strongly at the end. Check out the coverage on CNN or watch the race now:

Awesome!
