B-John D. Gunther (KY).

Justify etched his name into American racing history with a brilliant victory in the Belmont Stakes in NY seeing him become just the 13th horse to claim the Triple Crown.

Justify's romp resulted in a quarter in 23.37, a half in 48.11 and six furlongs in 1:13.21, a fairly snappy pace for a mile and half horse race. "Everybody was in tears, the staff at Glennwood, my daughter and even myself".

"The only way we can be competitive with the big boys of the breeding world is by backing ourselves and finding these horses as yearlings", Field said. "I think I see a lot of resemblance in these two, the way they move".

The family paired Justify's famous father - Scat Daddy- with their mare named Stage Magic.

"It's like climbing Mt. Everest", Gunther said.

The Gunthers knew shortly after Justify's birth he was something special.

Justify became the 13th horse in history to win U.S. racing's coveted Triple Crown with an electrifying triumph in the 150th Belmont Stakes on Saturday. "You look at 170,000 people yelling and screaming at the Kentucky Derby and he doesn't even turn a hair. Even just looking at him he's this massive lovely horse".

There were mild bids turning for home. "He is a Triple Crown victor and he's undefeated", Repole told Tom Pedulla of the New York Post. The final time for 1 1/2 miles was 2:28 and change.

Justify's pedigree features plenty of Canadian content.

"I just won the Triple Crown, man".

The season-ending Breeders' Cup world championships are in Louisville on November 2-3.

Justify's Triple Crown feat came 45 years to the day after another physically imposing chestnut, Secretariat, broke from the first post and won the Belmont by a stunning 31 lengths to complete the Triple Crown. His mounts have earned more than $310 million. Restoring Hope will have a new jockey Saturday since Smith will be busy riding Justify. But it's a challenge Gunther welcomes. "He's got such a natural high cruising speed and he can just kind of keep on going".

If he stays in the east, Justify now goes on to either the Grade 1 Haskell at Monmouth Park or the Jim Dandy at Saratoga. The next year, the classic rivalry of Affirmed and Alydar reached its peak when Affirmed inched ahead by a head to become the last Triple Crown victor until Pharoah arrived.

"He was calm", said Gunther.

"It is such a surreal feeling and one that I'm still trying to take in", he said. But Gunther opted to follow his gut with this decision, which came long before Justify's emergence as a champion racehorse. "He was standing so good, nearly too good". Gronkowski had won his last four starts in England, but had never raced on dirt or competed at farther than a mile prior to Saturday.

He told CBN News last month how he prepares for a big race - with training strategy and prayer.
