Triple Crown winning horse Justify is headed for retirement.
Triple Crown winner Justify led all the way at Saturday’s Belmont Stakes, but controversy arose Sunday after some raised questions about the role of another horse in the victory.
Rob Gronkowski was pretty stoked while watching his horse compete at the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.
While it was overshadowed by Justify’s Triple Crown win, Twitter had a ball after Gronkowski — the horse — staged quite the comeback to finish second at the Belmont Stakes.
So often in horse racing history we would see a horse win the first two legs of the Triple Crown but fail to bring home the third. On Saturday, that was not the case with Justify.
Justify won the Preakness on Saturday to capture the second leg of the triple crown, and jockey Mike Smith says he did so despite being tired.
Justify remains on course for a Triple Crown after edging out a win in the Preakness, but the stress levels may have been higher for those not involved.
What kind of horse is Justify? Good enough that Bob Baffert is comparing him to LeBron James.
