At 6-0, he joins Seattle Slew in 1977 as the only two undefeated Triple Crown winners; he's the first to sweep the series without racing at age 2 (because of a pulled muscle); and he's the only horse to beat nine rivals in the Belmont with a Triple try on the line.
"It was a monster race", said trainer Dale Romans, trainer of seventh-place finisher Free Drop Billy".
After the horse won its first two races, he knew Justify was an fantastic raw talent, capable of history.
Smith said Baffert made his dreams come true.
"To have the opportunity to be here, to make history like this, is an incredible feeling, and these horses. you buy them, or whatever - a horse like this, just kind of happens". The Belmont Stakes are named after August Belmont I, the first president of the American Jockey Club, according to Newsday. How far can I go - 10 wide - and try to go to the lead?
He had every reason to be thrilled that he had won the Triple Crown along with a legendary horse.

Square Enix's E3 2018 Sure Was Disappointing
Plus, I am just really bitter that we didn't see a remastered collection of Legacy of Kain, particularly Defiance. Two of the biggest Square Enix-published games have actually already been shown off on stage at E3 2018 .
Enter American Pharoah, who effortlessly floated around the expansive Belmont Park oval in 2015, then turned for home and hit the gas, pulling away from the field to send the capacity crowd into a prolonged state of euphoria. Justify was anything but typical.
Won his first race on February 18 at Santa Anita Park by 9-1/2 lengths. Honestly, I felt a little bit guilty that I had a stud deal and he had to retire at end of his 3-year-old season. Two weeks later, his shortest time between races, he captured the Preakness. Another option is to bet the race online which is legal in most states - just do your research to ensure you are betting with a reputable company. He's just an unbelievable horse. You've got to give him credit. WinStar likes to spread its horses around to different trainers. He became the first thoroughbred to win the Kentucky Derby without racing as a two-year-old since 1882, aka the Chester Arthur administration.
The Hall of Fame trainer has won the $400,000 Brooklyn Invitational with Hoppertunity.
Bob Baffert (center) trained both Justify and Restoring Hope. He had a lot of things against him, and we talked about that all week.
Baffert said he was "in awe" of Pharoah when he won, and "in shock" seeing him win.
The muscular horse is 1,268 pounds, more than 100 pounds more than American Pharoah, the Baffert-trained horse that won the Triple Crown in 2015, and stands at 16.3 hands high, slightly taller than American Pharoah.
Still, as happy-go-lucky as he seemed before the race, Baffert was unusually emotional in his post-race television interview.
"I'm getting help upstairs", he said in the press conference. "My (late) parents are helping me and friends I've lost. But he's really an exciting horse for us to have to look forward to the rest of the season". "I'm just very fortunate".
