Belmont Stakes: Justify completes US Flat racing Triple Crown

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

He became the 13th Triple Crown victor of all time and the second horse to accomplish the feat since 1978.

Justify, the Triple Crown victor, will get a well-deserved break before racing again this year, although no date or location has been targeted.

"He's so brilliant. Did you see him in the gate, he's standing so still", Smith said.

"Our focus was on each race as they came up", Walden said after unveiling Justify's Triple Crown banner inside Belmont Park.

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

Justify will be trying to become thoroughbred racing's 13th Triple Crown victor.

"Our focus was on each race as they came up", Elliot Walden of WinStar Farm said after Justify's Triple Crown Banner was unveiled Sunday. He becomes the second man to train twoTriple Crown winners, joining "Sunny Jim" Fitzsimmons in the annals of horse-racing history, per ESPN.

Among the other horses scheduled to compete in the Belmont is Bravazo, who challenged Justify in the Preakness and was beaten by a half-length.

Earlier, Baffert and jockey Mike Smith teamed to win the $750,000 Ogden Phipps with Abel Tasman.

But Smith confirmed that Justify "broke better today" than in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. From there, he reeled off consecutive Grade I wins in the April. 7 Santa Anita Derby, May 5 Kentucky Derby and May 19 Preakness S. Sales History: $500,000 yrl KEESEP '16. "Even though the fractions were soft for a horse of his caliber, still he had to go a mile and a half". He also pulled ahead of longtime friend and rival trainer Wayne Lukas, 82, to claim a record 15 wins in Triple Crown races (five Derbys, seven Preaknesses and three Belmonts).

At 6-0, he joins Seattle Slew in 1977 as the only two undefeated Triple Crown winners. "I was blown away", Mara said via the New York Post.

Purchased for $500,000, Justify earned $800,000 for his Belmont win, giving him $3,798,000 in his brief career. "He's sent from heaven". Fillies have won three times with Rags to Riches being the last in 2007, and nine foreign-bred horses have taken to the track known as "Big Sandy" on the Saturday three weeks after the Preakness Stakes to win the big race.

He had to run a quarter-mile longer than he ever had before to take the win.

Meanwhile, if Restoring Hope really was there only to help complete the Triple Crown, it was news to his owner. With Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski screaming in the stands, his namesake colt surged to third at the 11/4-mile mark, then unseated Vino Rosso for second as the field turned for home.

Victor Espinoza - the jockey who won at Belmont atop American Pharoah in 2015 - didn't race in the Belmont Stakes, but said it's never too soon to have another Triple Crown in the sport.

Justify returned $3.60 to win, $3.50 to place, and $2.80 to show.
