A plan will be formulated once the chestnut colt recovers from a compressed schedule that saw him win six races over 111 days since his debut on February 18.
The three-year-old chestnut colt became the 13th horse ever to win the Triple Crown of the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes after a dominant victory at Belmont Park in New York Saturday. Racing officials have not yet received confirmation from Baffert, but they remain hopeful that the colt could be paraded in conjunction with the presentation of the Kentucky Derby trophy to his connections. "His only chance was to be up near the lead in the first wave because he's like a one-dimensional horse".
Coolmore Stud had already negotiated for a $60 million deal, but Justify's Triple Crown win was worth a $15 million bonus, turning the breeding fee into a record breaker. "We'll take a deep breath and see where we are", said Elliott Walden, president and CEO of WinStar.
Smith said Baffert made his dreams come true. He stayed in second, 1½ to 2 lengths behind Justify, for a mile before retreating to eighth. But the horses slowed down the back stretch and Baffert liked what he saw on the timer at the half-mile pole. I tell you, it's just unbelievable. "I would have thought Baffert would have wanted Restoring Hope nowhere close to the pace".
"He'll walk at least the next three days, as long as he'll allow us to", Barnes said.
"Opinions die", Baffert said. He captured the first in 2:28.18.
Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, who saddled American Pharoah to end a 37-year-old Triple Crown drought in 2015, thus became the second trainer along with "Sunny Jim" Fitzsimmons to train two Triple Crown winners, with Fitzsimmons having conditioned Gallant Fox (1930) and his son, Omaha (1935). He refused comparisons between the two horses, saying they are different types of racers.
"I wanted to see that horse's name up there (with the other greats) because we know he was brilliant from day one", he told reporters. Justify is the 13th Triple Crown victor! Affirmed not only raced, but also won Horse of the Year honors, at age 4. Seattle Slew was unbeaten when he won the Triple Crown in 1977.
As he thundered across the line to win the coveted Triple Crown, Justify's value skyrocketed to about $60 million with potential for more.
