Justify Wins Triple Crown
« on: June 09, 2018, 05:03:48 PM »
Justify Wins the Triple Crown!

Justify becomes the 13th horse in history to win the triple crown!


The drought before that lasted so long — 37 years, in fact — that many began to believe that horse racing’s grand sweep would never again be accomplished.

Enter American Pharoah, who effortlessly floated around the expansive Belmont Park oval in 2015, then turned for home and hit the gas, pulling away from the field to send the capacity crowd into a prolonged state of euphoria. As he crossed the finish line, the racecaller exclaimed, “American Pharoah is finally the one!”


And now? JUSTIFY!

Confederate, Thanks for posting this. After the win at the Kentucky Derby, which I thought was amazing, I became too busy. To the 'Team Justify'  tiphat

Confederate did you have a change on this race?

I wish I could say yes but I wasn’t anywhere near a legal gambling place.  :nod:
