    Justify Becomes the 13th Triple Crown Winner

    Posted on Jun 12, 2018

    Justify BS 2018

    Saturday was a historic day as Justify became the 13th Triple Crown winner with his victory in the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, NY. Conditions were perfect and the track was fast on Saturday as Justify became the second Bob Baffert-trained triple crown winner since American Pharoah ended the 37-year drought in 2015.

    The track at Belmont is known for being more difficult than the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, with its additional length and deeper, softer sand. Justify passed the post in 2:28.18, with Gronkowski 1 ¾ lengths behind and Hofburg coming in third at 3 ½ lengths behind.
