Justify arrives in NY for Triple Crown bid

Justify arrives in NY for Triple Crown bid

The 150th Belmont Stakes race has the chance to see a Triple Crown victor as Justify - the horse that won the 2018 Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes - goes up against nine other horses in the race of its life! Justify is an overwhelming betting favorite to repeat the feat and win at Belmont.

Demling is giving away his pick for where Justify finishes only over at SportsLine. "From the rumblings I have been hearing, it seems there are a few people talking about him and handicappers seem to like him".

"Bode sent a text that said, 'Tell dad there's a cold front pushing through NY, and there's going to be a half-an-inch of rain the day of the race", Bob Baffert said shortly after his Kentucky Derby and Preakness victor settled in here at John Terranova's Barn 1, the same place that American Pharoah called his temporary home.

Justify has arrived at Belmont Park safe and sound ahead of his bid to become United States thoroughbred racing's 13th Triple Crown victor. That doesn't do much for my credibility.

"There's only limited chances to run in a race like this", Romans said. He skipped the Kentucky Derby but finished third in the Preakness and was closing fast.

Gronkowski is a mystery. In 1973, the Triple Crown-winning horse set a world record that still stands for a race on a mile-and-a-half dirt track. "You've always heard so many stories where the underdog wins, you just never know". The Belmont weight is a mere 126, so at this distance, it comes into play for certain. I think I have to pass on him.

Vino Rosso (Curlin-Mythical Bride) - John D. Gunther also bred Vino Rosso, the Wood Memorial Presented by NYRA Bets (G2) victor who races for Repole Stable and St. Elias Stable. Owners want the top trainers, so conditioners such as future Hall of Famer Todd Pletcher and current Hall members Bob Baffert, D. Wayne Lukas, Bill Mott and Steve Asmussen get more inquiries than they can keep track of and have the luxury of choosing their spots. He will probably be second choice this Saturday, but he's only won three of his 10 lifetime starts. Once Pharaoh did it, I just had this sense of relief.

The jockey knows the vast track with its sweeping turns like the back of his hand. The last to win from there was Empire Maker in 2003 when he spoiled Funny Cide's Triple Crown bid. We provide our community with the opportunity to share their opinions and vote on topics that matter most to them.

That won't be known until Saturday because none of the horses has ever run 1 ½ miles in a race, and likely won't be asked to again in their careers. NBC Sports will televise the 1.5-mile race.

"It's an unbelievable moment for us to add Justify and Jockey Mike Smith to our growing list of incredible Wheels Up brand ambassadors", Wheels Up founder and CEO Kenny Dichter said in a statement.

"But the thing that has me a bit anxious is the last horse to win the Belmont drawing the rail was Empire Maker in 2003 - in a six-horse field". Noble Indy (30/1) 10.

One of the biggest threats to Justify's hopes could come in the shape of 4-1 hope Hofburg, who was drawn in four.
