Justify to make run for Triple Crown from Belmont rail

08 June, 2018, 02:57 | Author: John Swanson
  • The Triple Crown trophy has a new look for Justify's attempt

Justify, who opened as a 4/5 favorite, is looking to become the first Triple Crown victor since American Pharoah, another Baffert horse, in 2015 but only the third since 1978. Baffert, you may recall, trained American Pharoah when he ended the 37-year Triple Crown drought in 2015.

Mott is the first to admit beating the undefeated and heavily favored Justify won't be easy.

Bravazo was sixth in the Derby and second in the Preakness with 90+ in three of his last four races. Maybe my horse found a niche on how to get faster somewhere down the line in the last couple of weeks.

Hofburg followed Justify in the morning line at 9-2. "From the rumblings I have been hearing, it seems there are a few people talking about him and handicappers seem to like him". His Preakness performance lacked the dominance of his prior starts if you consider the short and diminishing margin he beat second-place finisher Bravazo, but only a contrarian racing pundit would find fault in a front-running win over a sloppy track two weeks after winning the Kentucky Derby in similar conditions. He has won four of six career races in lower level stakes overseas.

Halo jumps provide twice the amount of freefall time compared to a standard parachute jump but they are inherently risky. Cruise himself doesn't add much other than saying how excited he is for audiences to see this latest act of derring-do.

The Derby means everything to Coolmore so they are still licking their wounds as they struggle to come to terms with Saxon Warrior's first defeat, but Epsom was not all doom and gloom for the Tipperary tigers as they won the Oaks with Forever Together.

He is the son of Tapit, who has sired three of the last four Belmont winners - Tonalist (2014), Creator (2016) and Tapwrit a year ago.

I had convinced myself that the way horses were trained and raced and the way the Triple Crown was set up, comparatively speaking, that no horse conditioned in today's world could physically get it done. "That's one of the main ingredients right there. They move a little different and have the lung capacity, and they have the whole package to do it".

Before you bet the 2018 Belmont Stakes, you'll want to hear what Jody Demling has to say.

The hosts came back well and Neuer made a superb close-range save from Florian Grillitsch just after the half hour. At the other end, Neuer made his first save on 16 minutes to deny attacking midfielder Schoepf.

A total of 23 horses have won the Belmont from the No1 post since records were kept in 1905, making it the winningest post position.

Hofburg finished his final workouts at Saratoga last week and shipped to Belmont.

On Thursday, June 7 and Friday, June 8, parking gates open at 10:45 a.m. and admission gates and concessions open at 11 a.m.

"I never do like the rail", Baffert told reporters at the Belmont draw Tuesday. "I could die and I would be the happiest dying person you ever met". We work with the horses.
