Justify. Justify. Justify. The winner of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont stakes for the coveted and rarest of sports achievements; the triple crown.
On a sunny day in New York with a firm track and in front of a capacity crowed, this 3 year old colt started out strong and finished with an incredible kicked to close out the 1.5 mile course.
The win is 45 years to the day of Secretariat’s famous ride into the history books. And with this triple crown victory, Justify joins just 12 other horses to have accomplished the same feat.
Tickets paid out at 4/5 so a $2 ticket earned the holder $3.60.
