Justify wins the Belmont Stakes and completes the Triple Crown

Justify wins the Belmont Stakes and completes the Triple Crown

Triple Crown victor Justify is ready to start the next portion of his career, becoming the most valuable stud horse in the world. He said the horse traveled well and will be "just taking it easy" for a few days before this weekend's celebration and return to California.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Triple Crown victor Justify has returned to Churchill Downs to rest as the track where the quest began prepares to celebrate the milestone.

"No, Restoring Hope, he has natural speed, and his only chance was to be up near the lead in the first wave because he's like a one-dimensional horse", he said. "After a week, it starts catching up with them". "Keeneland extends its congratulations to breeders John and Tanya Gunther; owners Kenny Troutt, Teo Ah Khing, Jack Wolf and Sol Kumin; trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Mike Smith".

" The $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar (Calif.) on August 18".

But the owner says he hopes the NY racing stewards talk to Geroux about his ride.

"We hope this entire group will be assembled again in late August in Saratoga", Kay said. He also took the lead as the victor of the most Triple Crown races. "When he broke a step slow - he's kind of an aggressive horse to ride, he pulls very hard - I wanted to make sure I put him in the clear", Geroux said. Honestly, I felt a little bit guilty that I had a stud deal and he had to retire at end of his 3-year-old season. "As such, Mr. Lewandowski indicated neither he nor his fellow stewards plan to discuss race strategy with Florent Geroux". "We were in the office watching the replay over and over. He's just that kind of horse". We're just so proud of him. Billy Turner, his trainer, had to negotiate the colt's transition from shiny young object to a horse of classic depth and poise, and they never missed a note.

A 37-1 longshot, Restoring Hope held the inside edge in second place for much of the race before eventually falling back to eighth.

Justify did not begin his career until February 18 and won his first two starts easily at Santa Anita. He's only won once, in a maiden race (meaning none of the horses had ever won). But now what? Has another "savior" of horse racing come and gone? He was managed so well by Bob and his staff.

The age limit for horses in the Derby is three years.

Smith, at 52, is the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown.

Baffert has been doing enough of that lately without him.

"Pharoah made so many people feel good", Baffert said.
