    TRIPLE CROWNED Justify captures Belmont...13th TC winner & second in 4 yrs.

    Justify has won the Triple Crown after winning the 150th Belmont Stakes on Saturday.Justify won the Belmont Stakes starting from the rail; the last Triple Crown from the rail at Belmont was Secretariat, 45 years ago to the day on Saturday.

    Justify is the 13th horse to earn the Triple Crown, but just the second horse to win it undefeated. Justify beat nine other horses to win -- more competition than any Triple Crown winner has even beaten in the Belmont. Justify has defeated 35 horses across the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.

    I thought this was GREAT...2 triple crown winners in 4 years is Crazy when u think how difficult it is to breed and train a horse with ability to win those 3 races. Super exciting to watch :-)))

    Agreed.

    But, sadly, I don't think having Justify winning the Triple Crown is going to do anything to stop the decline in interest in horse racing in the U.S. Slow it down a bit, MAYBE.

    When Seattle slew and affirmed won them in the late 70's I was going to Pimlico race track once a week and I was there the week of the races but never had a chance to see them. But it was neat thing to be down there at the time.
    Retired Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire was blunt in his assessment.

    “I wouldn’t touch Mali with a 10-foot pole,” he told me in fall 2016 after returning from a fact-finding trip to Africa with Defence Minister, Harjit Sajjan.
