How to watch Justify go for the Triple Crown without a TV

How to watch Justify go for the Triple Crown without a TV

Bob Baffert became only the second trainer in history to win the Triple Crown twice.

Justify will attempt to join previous Triple Crown winners later this evening when he runs in the 2018 Belmont Stakes. He wasn't a 2-year-old champion bred and built to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont. Baffert then threw him right into the Grade I Santa Anita Derby, which he won by 3 lengths. In thinking back to part of his rationale in allowing American Pharoah to keep running after the Triple Crown, Zayat said: "How do you deprive the sport of him?" He showed me that brilliance.

The 52-year-old Smith just knows what to do aboard a horse. Real Quiet came up and pulled away from Victory, but the horse wasn't going to let it go away without a fight. For horses used to training and running at shorter distances it can be like asking them to start over doing something completely different. "We got him in November, after the Breeders' Cup, and took our time with him, no rush". He's 5-0, having raced for the first time on February 18.

"I can't describe the emotions going through my body right now", he continued. Justify gave Baffert his 16th victory as trainer in the Triple Crown series - five Kentucky Derbies, seven Preaknesses and three Belmonts - breaking a tie with D. Wayne Lukas for tops all-time.

"I think it was just a special case", he said. That's the end of the story.

Justify became only the 13th victor of the Triple Crown, withstanding a late rush by a horse partially owned by New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski. Often it's the final quarter-mile that does in a contender. There is also, of course, the risk of defeat, which takes away some of the invincibility of a Triple Crown victor.

"He broke a bit slow. We got a good trip, it worked out well". They couldn't lose. What unfolded under an overcast sky before 90,327people at Belmont Park was the confluence of their work and skill, carried out brilliantly by a 1,380-pound horse that won for the sixth time in only 112 days. "He's a remarkable horse to run in all three legs as well as he did". "He ran well. I mean, for not having any pace, he finished up very well".

In 2015, another horse manned by trainer Bob Baffert rode to glory. "It was certainly the most thrilling race I've been involved in and the most excited I've been watching a race", Rags to Riches' trainer Todd Pletcher said to the New York Racing Association, per The Morning Call. Only Seattle Slew in 1977 was also undefeated when he won the Triple Crown.

Smith, who kept looking at the replay of his own performance while fielding questions from the media, admitted that he was anxious about how calm Justify stood in the gate. They didn't do it today. "He was able to go ahead and get a comfortable lead and let him get in that rhythm of his".
