Justify wins Triple Crown with dominant victory at Belmont

Belmont Stakes 2018: The 6 horses that are the best bets to upset Justify Belmont Stakes live stream: How to watch Justify go for the Triple Crown without a TV

No chance. Between his imposing size and the way his chestnut coat glistens in the sun, Justify is hard to overlook, particularly with his muscular hind legs propelling him forward.

The fashion scene at the Belmont Stakes is as diverse as NY itself.

There's good reason for that - the King made a surprise appearance behind Baffert in 2015 when his racehorse American Pharoah became the first to win the Triple Crown in 37 years. The two horses share the same trainer in Bob Baffert. "I thought maybe, because I could see Gronkowski flying, but he just couldn't get to that horse".

As the dust settles from Justify's emphatic win in Saturday's 2018 Belmont Stakes, the question will be asked: What's next?

Going beyond Justify and his Triple Crown win, NFL Twitter was all over the race's second-place finisher.

From there, he reeled off consecutive Grade I wins in the April 7 Santa Anita Derby, May 5 Kentucky Derby and May 19 Preakness S. Sales History: $500,000 yrl KEESEP '16.

Unlike the soggy Preakness Stakes, the weather will be clear and devoid of rain for the Belmont Stakes. Justify becomes the thirteenth Triple Crown victor and the first since American Pharoah in 2015.

Stephens takes swipe at 'haters' in media
The most recent match was in the 2017 Cincinnati Masters, a match Halep won in straight sets. Take a look at some of the best tweets after Halep's hard-earned victory.

Smith has never been aboard a Triple Crown victor, but at 52 he has the shrewdness and knowledge from regularly riding at Belmont Park years ago to rely on. Finishing a half-length ahead of Bravazo made it by far Justify's closest victory of his five, but it counts just the same. "A bit of the greenness came out today, but he was also pushed today early on".

Smith, with two previous Belmont Stakes victories to his credit, had him out front the entire time, keeping his silks clear as the rest of the field got caked in dirt.

Take American Pharoah, who won nine out of the 11 races he entered, including the Triple Crown in 2015.

Now all eyes are on Justify, who might have one major factor in his favor.

The silver-haired Californian becomes only the second trainer to saddle more than one Triple Crown victor after "Sunny" Jim Fitzsimmons, who trained Gallant Fox and Omaha between the wars.

Baffert is unsure whether to bring Solomini back from the Derby, though it wouldn't make much sense to put him in Justify's way.
