Scott Simon talks with author Laura Hillenbrand about next Saturday's Belmont Stakes. A 3-year old colt named War Emblem has already won this year's Kentucky Derby and Preakness. If he wins the Belmont Stakes, he will be the first horse to win the Triple Crown in a generation. Laura Hillenbrand is the author of the bestseller Seabiscuit: An American Legend.
