On a gorgeous Long Island day - with over 100,000 bearing witness, with the last three jockeys to win the Triple Crown there to give their blessing - this wasn't supposed to happen.

California Chrome wasn't supposed to lose.  This rags-to-riches story wasn't supposed to end in disappointment.  It didn't deserve that.
