Justify wins at Belmont Stakes to become 13th Triple Crown victor

Justify is the 13th Triple Crown victor!

He added that the colt will be "just taking it easy" for a few days before this weekend's planned victory celebration.

The 3-year-old son of Scat Daddy from the Ghostzapper mare Stage Magic defeated nine rivals in the mile and half "Test of Champions" that offered not only $1.5 million but the mantle of "greatness" to any horse that could win the longest race of the Triple Crown after convincing wins in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes a month earlier.

"Did you see him standing in the gate?"

A combination of factors can help or hurt a horse, including a poor start, bad racing luck or jockey error. "He's standing so still".

While it is doubtful that a breeder or trainer from the Lakeshore Horse Racing Association will developed a racing creature of this calibre anytime soon, the high calibre of pacers and trotters trained locally for the breeders cup at Woodbine, no doubt drew some eyes to the TV screen during the 150th running of this years Triple Crown Series.

Bob Baffert has done everything he can with Justify. "It never gets old". "He looks no different than the way American Pharoah did coming in here". "He's a brilliant, superior horse".

Soon, Xiaomi Mi A2 May Launch in India
The device comes with a 4500K selfie light which Xiaomi claims can produce white light similar to what we see in our surroundings. Redmi Y2 is packed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor, which is coupled with Adreno 506 GPU , and 3GB/4GB RAM.

Though Gronkowski didn't come out victorious, Gronk said it was cool feel even closer to the race as a part-owner. "Now we can take a deep breath and just see how the horse is".

There was a brief noise as Justify emerged, but fans mostly concentrated on positioning their cameras.

At the wire, it was the European invader Gronkowski second, Hofburg third and Vino Rosso fourth. Who was American Pharoah's trainer? "He's a horse from England".

"We hope this entire group will be assembled again in late August in Saratoga", Kay said. So I was wanting to win it without emptying that tank, and I underestimated the competition a little bit. "They were going slow and [jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr.] said he didn't want to make some insane move down the backside to go join him, which probably wouldn't have made any sense". "This horse overcame a lot". He ran well. I mean, for not having any pace, he finished up very well. The track said details for honoring Justify were still being worked out.

"It's just about getting the horse in a good, happy, comfortable place, wherever that may be", jockey Mike Smith said.

After waiting almost four decades for a Triple Crown victor, lightning has apparently struck twice in a four-year span. Justify, the latest star, made Funny Cide's accomplishments seem nearly ordinary, having broken the "Apollo Curse" to become the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve without racing at age 2 since 1882.

In addition to the three Triple Crown races, Justify's resume includes his maiden win, an optional claiming victory, and the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby, all with a combined winning margin of 23-and-three-quarter lengths.
