B-John D. Gunther (KY).
The three-year-old colt Justify won the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, after previously winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, the three most prestigious horse racing events of the year. Tanya Gunther was responsible for choosing the chestnut colt's parents. When Justify ran the first quarter-mile in:23.37, Gronkowski was 14 3/4 lengths behind the leader and eight lengths behind Free Drop Billy, who raced ninth in the 10-horse field. "Everybody was in tears, the staff at Glennwood, my daughter and even myself". So any horse that wins all three passes a threshold of speed, strength, and just plain grit. "What he's accomplished in such a short time is just really incredible, I just don't know what else to say".
The future may be unknown or undetermined for Justify, but Baffert wasn't ready to stop glowing about what transpired Saturday. Owners, fans and even rival trainers stopped by to sneak a peek at the undefeated victor of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. With lame odds on Justify, we'll have to look elsewhere for a good payout. "I think I see a lot of resemblance in these two, the way they move".
Before Justify won, 24/7 Wall St. has reviewed the 12 horses that have won the Triple Crown, according to Kentucky Derby's comprehensive list. He gave all credit to Justify, saying all he had done was "let a good horse be a good horse".
Justify's pedigree features plenty of Canadian content. "But if you win the Triple Crown you become a legend and that is what he is now".
"They both could win the Breeders' Cup Sprint and the Breeders' Cup Classic". Justify improved to 6-0 in a racing career that only began on February 18. He was also only three-quarters of a length behind Triple Crown contender Justify so keep him in mind when filling out your tri-fectas. But it's a challenge Gunther welcomes.
"To achieve a result like this, how do you beat it?"he said". A talented but inexperienced colt, Hofburg finished second to Audible in the Florida Derby on March 31, which was his stakes debut.

Kudlow said the US participated in G7 talks and bilateral talks on NAFTA in good faith and that Trump had been "charming". Deron Bilous, Economic Development and Trade Minister in Alberta's NDP government, said Canada shouldn't back down.
While it's nice to see a Triple Crown victor, it's hardly profitable for bettors.
Purchased for $500,000, Justify earned $800,000 for his Belmont win, giving him $3,798,000 in his brief career. But jockeys say Smith's age is actually an advantage.
"I didn't even realize it was Justify's half-brother and it was Stage Magic who'd had the foal". But Justify may come close.
"If he can run like Justify or nearly as good, that would do it", Gunther said. It amounts to a race once every 23.5 days on average.
The last time there was a Triple Crown coronation, President Barack Obama was still in office, Princess Charlotte was a month old and the long-suffering Cubs had not won a World Series since 1908.
"That mare is so special", Gunther said.
The Kentucky Derby and Preakness victor is the early 4-5 favorite for Saturday's 1 ½-mile Belmont, the longest and most grueling of the three-race series.
