Why Horse Racing's Top Prize Is So Elusive Tomorrow — for the second year in a row — it’s possible that a horse could win the last race in the Triple Crown — for the first time since 1978. American Pharoah won the Kentucky Derby five weeks ago. Two weeks later, he took the Preakness. Tomorrow, he’s run in the Belmont Stakes — with a chance of a Triple Crown winner for the first time in 37 years. What are his chances?

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.

Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
