New York Giants' Jason Pierre-Paul had never been to a horse race before, because as a child a horse kicked him a very sensitive area, so he has been wary of the animals ever since.

Vice Sports decided to take the defensive end to this year's Belmont stakes where he learned how to read a racing form, how to bet trifectas, and got some probably illegal tax advice.

At the end of the day, Pierre-Paul walks away with a $2 win, so he will probably not be quitting his regular job to handicap horses.
