Canadian breeders revel in Justify’s Triple Crown

Justify became the 13th Triple Crown victor in horse racing history on Saturday, winning the 150th Belmont Stakes.

Justify has won the Belmont Stakes in NY to become the 13th horse to claim United States thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown.

Thirty-five horses have gone into the Belmont with a chance to win the Triple Crown but only 12 have completed the feat, with American Pharoah being the most recent in 2015.

For the second time during this year's Triple Crown series, Brown came out second-best to Justify after Gronkowski's late rally fell 1 3/4 lengths short of the favorite in Saturday's Belmont Stakes.

In sweeping the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont, Smith becomes the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown. That could be a bit of a challenge for Justify and Bravazo, both of whom raced well in the mud; but it could mean good things for horses like Free Drop Billy and Noble Indy, who didn't.

The Belmont Stakes, to be held for the 150th time, is the longest of the triple crown races.

After the horse won its first two races, he knew Justify was an wonderful raw talent, capable of history.

Find out what the race's participants had to say after the 2018 Belmont Stakes. With real-life New England Patriot tight end Rob Gronkowski screaming in the stands, his namesake colt surged to third at the 1 ¼-mile mark then unseated Vino Rosso for second as the field turned for home. A $15 million boost to $75 million overall would make the colt the most valuable should he sell, eclipsing the $70 million Coolmore once paid for 2000 Kentucky Derby victor Fusaichi Pegasus.

"He's as impressive as Justify was as a yearling", Gunther said.

And Justify left no doubt about its right to history, Justify racing from the first post position and leading for the entire race. Baffert said he felt confident, not stressed, during the run-up to the race. He did so in 2015 with American Pharoah, a colt that ended a 37-year drought. "And I thought maybe, because I could see Gronkowski flying, but he just couldn't get to that horse". "When I unloaded him the other day, those horses in that barn went nuts when they saw him". I got very emotional, because I really think - I'm getting help upstairs.

He had every reason to be thrilled that he had won the Triple Crown along with a legendary horse. Justify becomes the thirteenth Triple Crown victor and the first since American Pharoah in 2015.

"I nearly collapsed when he went across the wire, it took all my breath away", he said. "He's so gifted. He's sent from heaven".

Baffert will saddle a second horse: 30-1 shot Restoring Hope.
