Giants owner celebrates Triple Crown with jab at Gronkowski

Sent off as the 4-5 favorite, Justify went to the lead out of the starting gate and led nine rivals around the track's sweeping turns.

Justify won the 150th Belmont Stakes, making him the 13th Triple Crown victor. "And I thought maybe, because I could see Gronkowski flying, but he just couldn't get to that horse".

The question now for Justify, who became the first horse since Seattle Slew in 1977 to win the Triple Crown with an undefeated record, is how the rest of his career might take shape. In 2015, Baffert won with American Pharoah, the last horse to capture the title.

"It never gets old", Baffert said. "After a week it starts catching up with them".

For now, Justify will head back to Churchill Downs in Kentucky Monday, then will travel back to trainer Bob Baffert's Southern California ranch June 17.

WinStar Farm CEO Elliott Walden has denied that a deal has been made and the New York Times last week reported that it may not be official until September so that Justify's owners can take advantage of tax laws dealing with capital gains.

Baffert can expect to hear from officials at several tracks eager to lure racing's newest superstar, much like he did with American Pharaoh.

"We hope this entire group will be assembled again in late August in Saratoga", Kay said.

"(Justify) was showing me the same signs (as American Pharoah)", Baffert told NBC Sports after the race. I love horses that are fresh for this race, and Rosso finished ninth in the Derby after recovering from a rough and messy start. "He was standing so good, nearly too good".

IL police officer saves child running along busy road
The 2-year-old boy is running south on Route 59 along the right lane, steps away from passing motorists in the center lane. Mannino was presented with the Life Saving Award from the Naperville Police Department last Thursday for his actions.

The Gunthers knew shortly after Justify's birth he was something special. "We were in the office watching the replay over and over". So any horse that wins all three passes a threshold of speed, strength, and just plain grit.

"We had already had a great run with him and were very proud of what he had achieved".

Gronkowski came on to finish second, with Hofburg third.

Despite a deal for his breeding rights worth a reported $75 million, the connections of Triple Crown victor Justify plan to continue racing him through the end of this year, they said Sunday. "This horse overcame a lot". He was managed so well by Bob and his staff. "This horse ran a tremendous race".

"To become just the 13th victor of the Triple Crown is fantastic and even more special is the fact that he is only the second Triple Crown victor to be bought at public auction after Seattle Slew in 1977".

Baffert has been doing enough of that lately without him.

"Pharoah made so many people feel good", Baffert said.

Those are the concerns, but for betting purposes, I truly think Justify is a freak of a horse and will contend in this race. Where Justify has run a half-dozen races in four months, this will be Hofburg's fifth race.
