JUSTIFY wins the BELMONT STAKES to become 13th TRIPLE CROWN WINNER in horse racing history!!!
JUSTIFY (Scat Daddy x Stage Magic) trained like a champion between the Preakness and Belmont Stakes, firing a bullet work ten days after his Preakness victory and periodically cavorting down the track at Churchill Downs during his morning gallops. Justify entered the paddock for the Belmont Stakes looking a masterpiece of power, fitness and professionalism. Having secured two legs of the Triple Crown with his victories in the G1 Kentucky Derby and G1 Preakness, Justify knew exactly what was expected of him this day. It was game day. He looked focused, ready and without doubt en route to the starting gate. Determined to lead from the outset, Mike Smith signaled Justify to break sharply from the gate out of the #1 hole and Justify duly responded with his powerful hindquarters propelling him to the front. The first quarter mile was relatively sharp, reflective of the effort to attain the early lead. Mike Smith then gave him a breather and retained the lead just ahead of his foes, pacing himself for the 1 1/2 miles distance of the Belmont Stakes. In a display of dominance, Justify kept each and every approaching horse squarely to his rear under a masterful ride by Mike Smith. Turning for home, the crowd went wild and cheered Justify home to Belmont Stakes victory and Triple Crown winning history!!!
