For the second time during this year's Triple Crown series, Brown came out second-best to Justify after Gronkowski's late rally fell 1 3/4 lengths short of the favorite in Saturday's Belmont Stakes.
Justify is seeking to become horse racing's 13th Triple Crown victor and second in four years when he runs in the Belmont Stakes.
"From his first start, you could see that he was a very, very impressive colt", John Gunther of Langley, B.C., who bred Justify at his Kentucky farm, told CTV Vancouver before the race. The colt named for New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski brings a four-race winning streak into his US debut. Justify rewarded his sun-splashed backers with $3.60 on a $2 bet to win.
"This horse ran a tremendous race", Smith said. Horses had come close to breaking it in recent years but it wasn't until Justify arrived that the superstition was put to rest.
For trainer Bob Baffert, this is his second Triple Crown victory overall, and second in the past four years.
The chestnut colt is trained by Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert and was ridden to victory by veteran jockey Mike Smith. He also pulled ahead of longtime friend and rival trainer Wayne Lukas, 82, to claim a record 15 wins in Triple Crown races (five Derbys, seven Preaknesses and three Belmonts).
The 37-year-old Wallace was part of buying team that purchased Justify when China Horse Club was still relatively new to the North American yearling market. I believe that given the circumstances, Justify's Triple Crown sweep is the greatest yet. "He's now become a household name, and I'm looking forward to his next race just as much as you guys are".
Police sergeant rescues child from busy roadway
A Naperville police officer rescued a toddler who was running alone on busy Route 59, according to authorities. No charges were filed against the mother, and police ruled the incident was an accident.
Justify has to overcome the No. 1 post position and Baffert will be watching closely to see if the colt breaks cleanly from the gate.
At 52, Mike Smith is the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown.
The first horse to load in the gate, Justify stayed so still and steady as the other nine followed suit that Smith anxious for a moment that he might not break at all.
Those are the concerns, but for betting purposes, I truly think Justify is a freak of a horse and will contend in this race.
Field was trackside for the final leg of the Triple Crown in NY as Justify continued the incredible partnership of WinStar, the China Horse Club and SF Bloodstock, which started in Australia.
Gronkowski, named for and partly owned by the New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, returned $13.80 and $7.
