Locals watch Belmont Stakes at Scarborough Downs

SCARBOROUGH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Locals gathered at Scarborough Downs Saturday afternoon to watch the Belmont Stakes.

While they left their big hats at home, they did bring their cash. And many were rooting for California Chrome to take the Triple Crown. Unfortunately he lost to Tonalist.

However, it wasn't a loss for everyone. Scarborough Downs officials say they saw double the usual amount of foot traffic, which they believe is due to the popularity of this year's race.

13 horses have won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness - and failed to win the Belmont Stakes - since Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978.
