Justify’s win in Belmont Stakes wraps up US Triple Crown

Justify’s win in Belmont Stakes wraps up US Triple Crown

But he (Justify) ran the whole mile and one half today, and he earned it (Triple Crown).

Can he become the first ever horse to win the Triple Crown without racing as a 2-year-old?

The 37-year-old Wallace was part of buying team that purchased Justify when China Horse Club was still relatively new to the North American yearling market.

"It's a privilege to have a horse like this", Baffert said about Justify.

Smith told reporters, "I just want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing us on this afternoon, and blessing us with this unbelievable horse". "It was meant to be".

The forecast calls for a high of 80 degrees and cloudy skies.

With attendance of 90,327, on-track handle was $16,159,584. A combination of factors can help or hurt a horse, including a poor start, bad racing luck or jockey error.

In 2015, the previous year with a Triple Crown on the line, all-sources handle on Belmont Stakes Day was $135,790,321. "Over the years, people have told me it was one of their most memorable races as well". It's a brutal task - one of the reasons there have only been 12 Triple Crown winners. This time Justify will face 9 others.

Should he win, he will be only the second undefeated horse to complete the triple crown, joining Seattle Slew (1977).

The race is over and history has been made. Gallant Fox, Omaha and War Admiral accomplished the feat in the 1930s. "It never gets old". In his first race on American soil, on a professional dirt track and going more than a mile, the horse Gronk went from last place to an oh-so-close second place finish over the course of the race. He celebrated by grabbing white carnations from the winner's blanket and tossing them in the air.

Concern over Justify's No. 1 position was eliminated right away, as Smith recalled the start.

The Boring Company is a tunnel construction business founded in 2016 to provide the infrastructure for an underground Hyperloop. The funds made through these "hot" sales would be, in turn, used to fund other ventures of The Boring Company.

Justify beat more Belmont opponents (nine) and more in the series (35) than any other Triple Crown hero.

Chris Mara has won two Super Bowl championships with the Giants and now he is a Triple Crown champion, too.

Under Smith's confident handling, Justify repelled Vino Rosso and drove the length of the stretch, with nary a colt strong enough to catch him.

The powerful colt with the blaze running the length of his face showed no signs that the rigors of running a compressed schedule had gotten to him.

"He's so brilliant. Did you see him in the gate, he's standing so still", Smith said.

Seven of these horses (including Justify) Ran in the Kentucky Derby, but none proved much of a challenge to him there.

"This horse ran a tremendous race".

Baffert told NBC Sports: "It's just incredible".

Smith got the colt into a relaxed rhythm under a moderate pace heading into the backstretch, and he had an easy trip from there.

"Mike great, obviously, and Justify is probably a great horse", said trainer Bill Mott, whose Hofburg finished third, 3½ behind Justify.
