Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul goes to the track to face his fear of horses

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.
