Justify dominates Belmont to become 13th Triple Crown victor

Justify Wins Triple Crown With Dominant Victory at Belmont

Belmont Stakes odds have Justify as the heavy favorite, as the Derby and Preakness victor looks to become just the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown.

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.

Newgate Farm boss Henry Field can't wait for unbeaten Triple Crown victor Justify to stand as a stallion in Australia after watching the colt he helped buy win the Belmont Stakes on Sunday.

Now owned by WinStar Farm, China Horse Club, Starlight Racing and Head of Plains Partners, Justify defeated former United Kingdom galloper Gronkowski by just on two lengths with Hofburg back in third.

That mantle will rest lightly on the shoulders of Justify as he becomes only the second colt in the history of the Triple Crown to go into - and come out of - the Belmont undefeated. "He was able to go ahead and get a comfortable lead and let him get in that rhythm of his".

The one massive drawback though is that players who have a PSN linked account can't switch over to the new Nintendo platform. What do you make of it so far? "Neither the Fortnite website nor Epic Customer Service are able to change this".


"Opinions die, but facts live forever, and that's what the Triple Crown is all about", Baffert said.

"What an wonderful experience, my heart was pounding and I had to sit down", said Gunther, who witnessed Justify's historic run at Belmont Park on Saturday.

The brilliant red and gold silks of the China Horse Club were highly visible to the capacity crowd as the field turned for home leading by two. So any horse that wins all three passes a threshold of speed, strength, and just plain grit. Now just three years later, racing is celebrating another sweep of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.

The chestnut colt, ridden by 52-year-old jockey Mike Smith, was first out of the gate and never gave up the lead. Now, three years after American Pharoah ended the sport's 37-year drought, he did it again.

CORRECTS DATE TO SATURDAY, JUNE 9, NOT SUNDAY, JUNE 10 - Justify (1), with jockey Mike Smith up, crosses the finish line to win the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes horse race and the Triple Crown, Saturday, June 9, 2018, in Elmont, N.Y.

"Everybody thinks I'm so opposed to Saratoga", he said. Most horses that have tried to win the Triple Crown have not won the Triple Crown. For him to close that much ground, it was a remarkable race.

"I actually thought maybe he's not going to break today".

"On Saturday, I couldn't believe how he walked into the paddock". Smith faced the pressure of helping Justify take that final step to become the sport's 13th Triple Crown victor. Gronkowski brought back $13.80 to place and $7 to show, while Hofburg paid $3.70 to show.

"From his first start, you could see that he was a very, very impressive colt", John Gunther of Langley, B.C., who bred Justify at his Kentucky farm, told CTV Vancouver before the race.
