1978: The racehorse Affirmed wins the Belmont Stakes to capture the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing. The thoroughbred was the 11th horse to win the Triple Crown, which consists of winning the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes, and the most recent until American Pharoah won it again 37 years later in 2015.
