Meanwhile, it looks like Justify will have to win his first Triple Crown race on a fast track.

The 2018 Belmont Stakes Saturday will determine whether Justify clinches the Triple Crown or comes up a race victory short.

Baffert became the second trainer to win the Triple Crown twice.

Smith said Baffert made his dreams come true. "He had great stature-was a very impressive horse when he was pulled out in front of you". I think it's changed.

Baffert sounds confident that Justify can handle the workload, per Jonathan Linter at Horse Racing Nation. The 24-1 longshot Gronkowski got up for second, while Hofurg and Vino Rosso completed the superfecta. He led wire to wire. Only Bravazo will compete from that early group of contenders.

It was the first of five mounts Smith had on the 13-race card.

As impressed as people were by Justify's win, even more people had sports jokes ready.

Prediction: Justify is facing a weak field and will make history.

Gronkowski (No. 6) was very slow out of the gate, fixed at the back of the pack for half of the race, but roared back to finish just behind the wire-to-wire champion.

Justify, who went off as a 4-5 favorite, held off Gronkowski and Hofburg, who finished second and third, respectively. So, Justify's jockey, Mike Smith, would gross $80,000. Why can't one of these thoroughbreds just win three athletic competitions in a row?

Hofburg finished third 3.5 lengths behind the victor, with Vino Rosso fourth at 3.75 lengths behind.

Justify defied all the odds on his way to achieving Triple Crown immortality.

The mating with Scat Daddy, who stood for a bargain fee of $30,000 when Justify was conceived, was the idea of Gunther's daughter, Tanya.

Saturday could be a big day in the life of a former SIU football player.

Now he has joined Jim Fitzsimmons, who conditioned Gallant Fox in 1930 and Omaha in 1935, as the only trainers to saddle two Triple Crown winners.

For Justify, being one of the finest athletes of our time will have to do. Baffert declared that he had a plan that would allow the promising 3-year-old to overcome what seemed to be a hopelessly late start and still qualify for the 20-horse Kentucky Derby.

"I wanted to see that horse's name up there", Baffert said. He splashed home by 2 ½ lengths at sloppy Churchill Downs to finally end the Curse of Apollo.
