Justify wins the Belmont Stakes and completes the Triple Crown

Belmont Stakes 2018: Betting odds, picks, favorites

WinStar CEO and President Elliott Walden indicated Sunday that the plan is to race Justify through the rest of the year, though his next start has not yet been determined.

Justify is still the fastest horse on the planet, and could potentially win more prizes on the track at the Travers Stakes or even the Breeder's Cup later in the year.

Justify, who cross the finish 1¾ lengths in front of 24-1 longshot and Keeneland sales graduate Gronkowski, is the 20 Belmont victor produced by Keeneland sales. He said the horse traveled well and will be "just taking it easy" for a few days before this weekend's celebration and his return to California.

Baffert, jockey Mike Smith and Justify's owners will receive engraved trophies for winning the Kentucky Derby during Saturday night's card. In 2015, when American Pharoah won the Triple Crown, the Fighting Irish went 10-and-3 - falling to Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl.

"It never gets old", Baffert said.

" The $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar (Calif.) on August 18". He did so with American Pharoah in 2015, ending a 37-year drought. Superior horse. I mean, he could have won every race on the undercard today. "I'm not. I've had really good luck there".

"It's been the longest, quickest journey", a hoarse-sounding Baffert said as light rain fell outside Justify's barn. He's just an unbelievable horse. "I was going to bring four (horses) but I didn't want to buck those odds of, like past year".

Sachin Tendulkar wants more opportunities for minnows after Scotland win
England's limited-overs schedule this summer will truly kick into gear with a one-day global series against Australia . Scotland crossed swords with England in a one-off ODI at Edinburgh and comfortably emerged triumphant by 6 runs.

The Kentucky Derby is run annually on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. He captured the first in 2:28.18. He was managed so well by Bob and his staff.

Baffert - who has won more Triple Crown races than anyone - complimented his team for helping the horse, which ran three major, testing races in five weeks.

"It is a tremendous honor for Keeneland to have sold racing's newest Triple Crown victor, Justify", Keeneland President and CEO Bill Thomason said. He pricked his ears at the sound of the shutter clicks and when Baffert led him closer, he playfully bit at one camera.

Smith said Baffert made his dreams come true. "This horse, I'm sure there was millions of people screaming at their TV wanting to see it done".

His human handlers also made history.

Justify's victory silenced the skeptics who believed the colt was due for a loss because of his rushed schedule and close result in the Preakness.
