June 10

1890 — The Preakness Stakes is run outside Baltimore, at Morris Park in New York. The race is then suspended for three years, and resumes at the Brooklyn Jockey Club’s Gravesend Course from 1894-1908.

1933 — Johnny Goodman wins the U.S. Open golf title, making him the last amateur to win this event.

1944 — A rare triple dead heat occurs in the Carter Handicap at Aqueduct with Bossuet, Brownie and Wait a Bit crossing the finish line together.

1973 — Mary Mills shoots a 63 in the final round of the LPGA Championship to beat Betty Burfeindt by one stroke.

1977 — Al Geiberger sets a PGA Championship 18-hole record when he shoots a 59 in the Danny Thomas Classic.

1978 — Affirmed, ridden by Steve Cauthen, wins the Belmont Stakes to capture the Triple Crown in one of the greatest battles in racing history. Affirmed edges Alydar for the third time.

1989 — Wayne Gretzky of the Los Angeles Kings is named the NHL’s MVP, winning the Hart Trophy for a record ninth time.

1989 — Arantxa Sanchez, 17, becomes the youngest French Open champion and the first Spanish woman to win a Grand Slam event by dethroning Steffi Graf 7-6, 3-6, 7-5.

1989 — Easy Goer, the beaten favorite in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, foils Sunday Silence’s bid for the Triple Crown with an eight-length victory in the Belmont Stakes. His time of 2:26 is the second fastest at Belmont, behind Secretariat’s 2:24 in 1973.

1990 — Andres Gomez ends 10 years of Grand Slam frustration with a 6-3, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Andre Agassi to capture the men’s title in the French Open for his first Grand Slam championship.

1995 — Trainer D. Wayne Lukas wins a record five straight Triple Crown races as Thunder Gulch takes the Belmont Stakes. Lukas is the first trainer to win the Triple Crown races with two different horses. Lukas’ Timber Country won the Preakness.

2005 — Baltimore’s 4-3 win over Cincinnati marks the first time that three 500-homer players appear in the same game — the Orioles’ Sammy Sosa (580) and Rafael Palmeiro (559), and the Reds’ Ken Griffey, who hits a solo shot in the eighth inning for No. 511.

2006 — Justine Henin-Hardenne wins her fifth Grand Slam title and her third at Roland Garros, beating Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4, 6-4. The Belgian is the first woman to win consecutive titles at Roland Garros since Steffi Graf in 1995-96, and the first to win three French Open titles in four years since Graf in 1993-96.

2006 — In Atlantic City, N.J., Bernard Hopkins wins a unanimous decision over light heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver, capping an 18-year career with an upset for the ages.

2007 — Roger Federer’s bid to complete a career Grand Slam is foiled again by nemesis Rafael Nadal at the French Open. Nadal earns his third Roland Garros title in a row, beating Federer 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

2007 — Suzann Pettersen shoots a 5-under 67 for a one-shot victory over Karrie Webb at the LPGA Championship.

2010 — Southern California is placed on four years probation, receives a two-year bowl ban and a sharp loss of football scholarships. The NCAA cites USC for a lack of institutional control. The NCAA found that Reggie Bush, identified as a “former football student-athlete,” was ineligible beginning at least by December 2004. The NCAA also orders USC to vacate every victory in which Bush participated while ineligible. USC loses 30 scholarships over a three-year period, 10 annually from 2011-13.

2010 — The University of Colorado accepts an invitation to join the Pac-10 Conference.

2012 — Shanshan Feng wins the LPGA Championship to become the first Chinese player to win an LPGA Tour title and a major event, closing with a 5-under 67 for a two-stroke victory. Stacy Lewis, Mika Miyazato, Suzann Pettersen and third-round leader Eun-Hee Ji finish in a tie for second.
