Justify Captures Triple Crown With Belmont Stakes Win

Belmont Stakes live stream: How to watch Justify go for the Triple Crown without a TV

"He knows when he sees me it's time to do something serious, you know?"

"This means everything to Glennwood", said John Gunther.

Justify settled into a good rhythm and turned back a brief early bid from Vino Rosso (Curlin) on the turn.

Despite a deal for his breeding rights worth a reported $75 million, the connections of Triple Crown victor Justify plan to continue racing him through the end of this year, they said Sunday.

"I told him I loved him", he said. He's been training at Saratoga since the Kentucky Derby and should be fresh after not running in the Preakness. Horse racing's latest superstar will attempt to become the 13th Triple Crown victor in U.S. Thoroughbred racing and he has a great chance to accomplish the feat. Justify is also the first horse to register the sweep without racing as a two-year-old due to a pulled muscle.

Justify's pedigree features plenty of Canadian content.

Save for a news helicopter circling during training hours, the scene was as mellow as could be - three years between Triple Crown attempts will have such an effect.

"They both could win the Breeders' Cup Sprint and the Breeders' Cup Classic".

Alec Baldwin Teases Running For President In 2020
Never short on confidence, Baldwin responded: "If I ran, I would win..." If I ran, I would win... He also said that his campaign would be, "the funniest, most exciting, most insane campaign".

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.

When fans roared at him in appreciation on the way back to the winner's circle, Smith calmly point to Justify. He earned $800,000 for winning the Belmont, boosting his career total to nearly $3.8 million. Smith will be aboard Justify in the colt's bid to become racing's 13th Triple Crown victor. But it's a challenge Gunther welcomes. "He's got such a natural high cruising speed and he can just kind of keep on going".

"I think it's very fitting that Gronkowski finished second again", Mara cracked.

And Gunther might have to look no further than his farm for the next Justify. In that case, the last Triple Crown victor came when Jimmy Carter was in the second year of his Presidency, the Shah of Iran was still in power, and the Soviet Union still existed and had not yet launched what would become a disastrous war in Afghanistan, and Grease had not yet been released in theaters. He was purchased as a yearling for $500,000.

"He's so brilliant. Did you see him in the gate, he's standing so still", Smith said. But Justify may come close. "He was standing so good, nearly too good".

Of course, the race that Baffert and Smith really want to win is the Belmont Stakes.

Especially considering another Stage Magic offspring, The Lieutenant, won a Grade III race last month, giving the mare two recent graded states winners.
