2018 TRIPLE CROWN RACE WINNER!

At the Kentucky Derby, “Justify” is the winner of the Run for the Roses.

On SaturdayLinks, the 52-year-old Smith became the second oldest Jockey
to win the event, riding Justify, a 7-2 favorite. Justify was also a record-breaker,
he was the first horse since the 1800’s to win the event for 3-year old horses
without running a race as a 2 year old.

“Justify” lives up to the billing and brightens an otherwise dismal Preakness Day!

If ever the Preakness needed a great horse to chase the
clouds away, it was on this strangely foggy Saturday afternoon.

If ever Maryland racing needed an upbeat narrative to counter
the downbeat outlook that seems to hover over the future
of the second jewel of the sport’s Triple Crown, it was the moment
when Kentucky Derby winner Justify was rounding the final turn at Pimlico Race Course.

Justify kept everyone in suspense all the way to the finish line,
but the bigger-than-life chestnut colt held off all late comers
to give the announced crowd of 134,487 a chance to be at the
center of Triple Crown history for the second time in four years.

Justify won the Belmont Stakes
in emphatic fashion on Saturday to earn the Triple Crown.

With a white blaze, a sweeping stride and an unblemished record,
Justify came to the site where Pharoah ended a 37-year Triple Crown
drought and, guided by the same trainer, took his own shot at history.

Ridden by the 52-year-old ironman Mike Smith, Justify did not disappoint
the crowd of about 90,000 as he quickly went to the lead and stayed there,
despite a pack of contenders closing in behind him, to capture the 150th Belmont Stakes
by a length and three-quarters and become the 13th Triple Crown winner.
