The 13 Horses That Have Won the Triple Crown, As Justify Prevails

There isn't expected to be a rain cloud in sight, though skies may be partly cloud, so a fast track and firm turf is on tap for the 13-race card.

"The Triple Crown is over", Brown said.

"Our focus was on each race as they came up", Elliot Walden of WinStar Farm said after Justify's Triple Crown Banner was unveiled Sunday. It was the second Triple Crown for trainer Bob Baffert and the first for jockey Mike Smith. The crowd has been capped at 90,000.

Prior to his victory, the thoroughbred had a ideal 5-0 record in his brief career and had won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. A sore heel a day after that victory raised brief concerns, but two weeks later Justify dug deep at fog-shrouded Pimlico to claim the 1 3/16-mile Preakness. Justify was the first colt to win the Derby without racing as 2-year-old in 136 years. "That's his job, to protect the other horse and it worked for them". Finally finding room through which to squeeze midway through, Hofburg had to shift outward or else risk losing his momentum, but the result was a five-wide run that might have taken too much out of him.

The forecast calls for a high of 80 degrees and cloudy skies. Justify reported home two lengths in front of that rival, with Hofburg (Tapit) rounding out the trifecta.

"But we ran into a buzzsaw, an incredible horse, a rare horse and that's the way it went".

Justify proved he is a true champion when he made every pole a winning one in the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes, the third leg of Thoroughbred Racing's Triple Crown. He'll have nine horses to contend with.

Gronkowski had never raced on dirt, had never raced farther than a mile, qualified but didn't run in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1) because he spiked a fever, switched trainers before the race, and only had two published works ahead of the most hard start of his career. This horse, who is jockeyed by two-time Stakes victor John Velasquez, skipped the Preakness to be fresh for the Belmont. Coming off a three-week break is Blended Citizen. The most rested entry is Gronkowski, having last run on March 30 in England.

The fashion scene at the Belmont Stakes is as diverse as NY itself. He gave all credit to Justify, saying all he had done was "let a good horse be a good horse".

Justify shredded the history books.

Baffert will saddle a second horse: 30-1 shot Restoring Hope. He finished 12th that day in the Pat Day Mile on the undercard at Churchill Downs. But most important, Justify's victory assures that we won't have to wait another 37 years to see a Triple Crown. In fact, until the Preakness Stakes, no contender had come within 2 1/2 lengths of Justify as he had to fend off Bravazo and Tenfold late.
