Belmont Stakes 2018 Payouts: Win, Place, Show Results For 150th Race

He impressively won the Kentucky Derby by two-and-a-half lengths in wet and muddy conditions and then overcame a heel problem and more wet weather to win the Preakness. Smith will be aboard Justify in the colt's bid to become racing's 13th Triple Crown victor.

A son of the late Ashford Stud stallion Scat Daddy, Justify was among a group of yearlings bought by Kenny Troutt's WinStar operation and China Horse Club with the objective of winning the classics.

A sore heel a day after that victory raised brief concerns, but two weeks later Justify dug deep at fog-shrouded Pimlico to claim the 1 3/16-mile Preakness.

He didn't flinch when greeted by a roaring crowd as he walked onto the track. Justify was the Belmont's wire-to-wire leader, jumping to a lead out of the gate and never relinquishing it.

For Justify, being one of the finest athletes of our time will have to do.

Justify became the second undefeated Triple Crown victor after Seattle Slew in 1977, finishing first in a field of 10.

Prediction: Justify is facing a weak field and will make history.

President Trump Hosts His First Iftar Dinner at the White House

In the last 16 years, the only race-day favorite to win the Belmont Stakes was American Pharoah. Gallant Fox, Omaha and War Admiral accomplished the feat in the 1930s. But Good Magic got the 2-year-old Eclipse Award.

American Pharoah was offered to the public at the 2013 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select yearling sale but was bought back by agent David Ingordo for $300,000 on behalf of breeder Zayat Stables.

Justify with jockey Mike Smith aboard wins the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York, U.S., June 9, 2018.

Mike Smith, at 52, is the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown. Justify won that race, and he hasn't lost since, taking an allowance, the Santa Anita Derby, and now the Triple Crown in just six starts.

The powerful colt with the blaze running the length of his face showed no signs that the rigors of running a compressed schedule had gotten to him.

"This horse ran a tremendous race". He is sent from heaven, I tell you. "I can't describe the emotions that's going through my body right now".

Justify is now the 13th horse to win the greatest honor of horse-racing, and only the second since 1998.
