American Pharoah, as mentioned, is the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed managed the feat in 1978

We’ve got the full finishing order for the 2015 Belmont Stakes. American Pharoah won the race and the Triple Crown.

American Pharoah is your first Triple Crown winner since 1978, snapping a massive drought of horses who were unable to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. American Pharoah was favored to win the race, and he came through with a fantastic run, beating out Frosted, Materiality and the rest of the pack.

He led the race after a shaky start out of the gate, and there were times it looked like Frosted might be making a push. American Pharoah held him off every time though, pushing harder to get the win and cement his place in history.

American Pharoah, as mentioned, is the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed managed the feat in 1978. There was, as always, plenty of hype around a potential victory but given the large list of near-misses — horses that won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes before falling short in the Belmont — it always seemed unlikely. There was simply so much history going against American Pharoah’s chances, but the longest Triple Crown drought in horse racing’s history has now been broken.

American Pharoah joins elite company by winning the Triple Crown. We already knew this horse was one of the best in racing, but he’ll now be mentioned alongside names like War Admiral, Secretariat and Seattle Slew.

Here is the full finishing order for the 147th running of the Belmont Stakes:
