A great race won by the brilliant Justify leading all the way and completing the Triple Crown.

Gronkowski, sired by Lonhro and having its 24th start, was a gallant second after tailing off early.

From Gallop Magazine:

The road to win the Triple Crown is said to start with winning the first of the three races – The Kentucky Derby. But the truth is that the first, and biggest obstacle, is to get to run in The Derby in the first place. As the Triple Crown races are only open to 3-year olds, horses normally have to start to show quality as 2-year olds in order to get to participate in the races that earn them points that can earn them a place in The Derby.
Justify didn’t win as a 2-year old. He didn’t even race last year. His first race was on February 18, just three months before he won the Derby. He won that race. And has won every one of his races since then. But his biggest achievement is not only that he won all the three races. It’s the facts behind him that makes him stand out even among Triple Crown winners.

Here are some facts that make Justify unique among the unique.

Justify is the first horse since 1882 to win The Triple Crown without having raced as a 2-year old.

Justify is the second horse in history to win The Triple Crown without having lost a single race in its career (The first was Seattle Slew)

Justify was ridden by Mike Smith, 52. The oldest jockey ever to win The Triple Crown.

Justify is trained by Bob Baffert who also trained American Pharoa who won in 2015. Buffert is the second trainer ever to have trained two Triple Crown winners. The first was Jim Fitzsimmons in 1930 (Gallant Fox) and 1935 (Omaha).

Justify was bred by John Gunther at the family run Glenwood Farm. John also bred his dam – Stage Magic

Justify sire – Scat Daddy – had a breeding fee of only $35.000.

The winner ran its opposition into the ground.

They were all on empty - except for the runner up, whose run was extraordinary.

Lonhro only had a 400m sprint, but Gronkowski has quite bit more than that!

Sensational horse the winner. Hell of the run the 2nd, never been in a 'real' race, having his first start in the US and had come from an impossible position to run 2nd to a TC winner.

Best Belmont Ive seen in some time.
