The horse was the first winner of the three major races since 1978.

American Pharoah has won the Triple Crown, and its jockey couldn't contain his emotions.

The horse won the Belmont Stakes race Saturday, becoming the first horse to win that race, along with the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, in the same year since 1978, when Affirmed accomplished the feat.

After the victory, American Pharoah jockey Victor Espinoza said "holy shit" to the horse's trainer, and the expletive aired live on NBC.

An NBC rep did not respond to a request for comment.

Video of the exclamation can be seen below.
