Triple Crown! Justify wins the Belmont

Justify, who will try to become the 13th Triple Crown victor, remains the favorite at 4/5 odds for the 1 1/2-mile race.

Triple Crown and Belmont Stakes contender Justify trains with Humberto Gomez up prior to the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park on June 8.

He's the second undefeated colt to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.

Just 12 horses have swept the Triple Crown, one of the rarest feats in sports.

In the last 16 years, the only race-day favorite to win the Belmont Stakes was American Pharoah.

It was Baffert's fifth attempt to win the Triple Crown - three more than any other trainer.

Gronkowski came in second, while Hofburg finished third.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.

This shocking run wasn't so shocking to those who watched Justify's early moves on the track at Santa Anita. May the best horse win!

After his first few months in training, Justify had a little time off before he was sent to trainer Rodolphe Brisset's barn at Keeneland, where he would have his first several breezes on the racetrack. There are only 13 Triple Crown winners in the century-plus that all three races have been run. Both races were run on sloppy tracks.

Won his first race on February 18 at Santa Anita Park by 9-1/2 lengths. Owners, fans and even rival trainers stopped by to sneak a peek at the undefeated victor of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes.

Starting from the No. 1 post position, Justify was able to break cleanly, and he went right to the front.

The race is over and history has been made. The Kentucky Derby prize money now totals roughly $2 million, with $1.24 million for the victor.

It was the first of five mounts Smith had on the 13-race card. Baffert oversaw American Pharoah's Triple Crown success in 2015 and has used the same methods with Justify. How much money does Justify's team get if he is able to win the Belmont? I'm probably closer to that horse because of his temperament... He could hardly believe the acceleration he felt underneath him when he asked the big horse to make a move midway through a 6 ½-length victory.
