Triple Crown Winners: List of 13 Horses Who Won

Belmont Stakes live stream: How to watch Justify go for the Triple Crown without a TV WATCH: Live streaming of Belmont Stakes, Justify's attempt at the Triple Crown

Justify won the Belmont Stakes presented by NYRA Bets by 1 ¾ lengths on June 9 at Belmont Park to complete a sweep of the USA classic races and become the 13th Triple Crown victor in US racing history.

The New Mexico native won 15 Grade 1 races in 2017, including nine with Bob Baffert, the trainer of Justify and now a two-time Triple Crown victor.

"Grateful to have a horse like this, " Elliott Walden, one of Justify's owners, said after the 3-year-old went wire-to-wire in 2:28.18 to become the second horse in four years to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont.

And the horse proved his trainer prescient, winning a Triple Crown with a mesmerizing and dominant victory at the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.

It was the second Triple Crown for trainer Bob Baffert and the first for jockey Mike Smith. Not all horses take well to running in mud, especially sloppy mud.

After winning the first two races earlier this year, Justify was the clear favourite to win Saturday's race in Elmont, New York.

From the first turn through the back stretch, Restoring Hope hung right off Justify, pinning Bravazo to the rail, whose late charge in the shorter Preakness Stakes almost overtook Justify in that race.

The third wire-to-winner at the Belmont in the past 34 years, Justify pulled away from second-place finisher Gronkowski down the stretch to an absolutely deafening roar from the thousands in attendance.

Kudlow, a wry and upbeat speaker, has also adopted some of Trump's hard-line rhetoric while working inside the West Wing. He previously worked as a host on CNBC, and before that as a banker and economic adviser in the Reagan administration.

With Justify on the verge of becoming the second Triple Crown victor in three years, Elmont, New York has become the center of the sports world on June 9. All three races that make up the Triple Crown vary in distance, so a horse known for its blistering pace might fare better at The Preakness where the distance is less enduring.

Justify had never raced until February. Breaking from the less-than-desired No. 1 post, Smith gunned Justify to the lead and never looked back.

"Give them the credit", said Baffert of WinStar.

Justify reached full speed at midstretch, and it was clear he would win the race and earn the Triple Crown.

'Justify's a freak, super horse, undefeated, incredible what he's done, ' Repole told DFR. I'm so proud to be an American and feel this way, it's very emotional for me.

He had every reason to be thrilled that he had won the Triple Crown along with a legendary horse. "He's sent from heaven". Now, three years after American Pharoah ended the sport's 37-year drought, he did it again.

"I nearly collapsed when he went across the wire, it took all my breath away", he said.

The two Todd Pletcher-trained racers, Vino Rosso (+900) and Noble Indy (+2800), will break side-by-side from gates 8 and 9 respectively. Restoring Hope, also trained by Baffert, ran interference for the champion while traveling second and deterring any threats by forcing them to go extremely wide.
