Elmont, New York (WSYR-TV) - After winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, California Chrome did not win the Belmont Stakes on Saturday. 

California Chrome made a late charge, but ended up finishing tied for fourth.  Tonalist won the Belmont.

If he won, California Chrome would have been the first horse to win the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing since Affirmed accomplished the feat in 1978.
