Justify bags Triple Crown win in Belmont Stakes

Justify was bred by John Gunther, of Langley, B.C., at Glennwood Farm in Versailles, Ky., which is run by his daughter, Tanya.

Their strides and running styles are comparable, Baffert said, adding that they both had similar struggles in their races leading up to the Belmont event. "Everybody was in tears, including myself".

"Yeah, I belong now", said Smith, who ripped carnations from the garland of flowers draped on Justify after the race and tossed them in the air to celebrate.

The family paired Justify's famous father - Scat Daddy- with their mare named Stage Magic. John Gunther credits his daughter's encyclopedic understanding of blood-lines for creating the champion thoroughbred.

"It's such an awesome horse", said Gunther from Elmont. "We're like the coach, but they're the athletes, and the jockeys get it done". By today's standards, that is still a lot of racing packed into a relatively short period. In 2015, Baffert won with American Pharoah, the last horse to capture the title. Three races over the course of five weeks, all at different locations and ranging from 1 3/16 to 1 1/2 miles, take a toll on even the most experienced horses. "You look at 170,000 people yelling and screaming at the Kentucky Derby and he doesn't even turn a hair". So any horse that wins all three passes a threshold of speed, strength, and just plain grit. I wanted to see that horse's name up there, because we knew he was brilliant from day one.

Baffert joined Fitzsimmons as the only trainers to oversee two Triple Crown winners.

"Justify is a super horse".

Justify's pedigree features plenty of Canadian content.

It always takes a special horse to complete the American Triple Crown sweep. He's 5-for-5 in a career that did not begin until February 18 of this year. Justify was purchased as a yearling for $500,000. He earned $800,000 for winning the Belmont, boosting his career total to nearly $3.8 million.

The weather in the NY area on Saturday is expected to be on the warmer side, with highs in the upper 70s. But it's a challenge Gunther welcomes.

"Did you see him in the gate, he's standing so still", Smith said.

Chad Brown-trained Gronkowski finishes second in the Belmont Stakes on Saturday. We saw another Triple Crown victor.

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

According to Sports Illustrated, the curse of Apollo was one of the "longest curses in sports". Simply, Justify redefined what it means to be a great racehorse.

"I knew on the first turn that it wasn't good because the way the horse was running, he was not relaxed and we still had a mile and a half to go nearly", jockey Stewart Elliott recalled recently. Here are the odds for every contender in the field the morning of Saturday's race. "She really puts everything into her foals". A true closer, Blended Citizen does his best running in turf and synthetic races but is still an intriguing challenger to Justify thanks to his consistent speed figures and stamina pedigree.
