Belmont Stakes Draw: Justify Is Favorite in Bid for Triple Crown
07 June, 2018, 07:29
Now he enters the $1.5m race at Belmont Park as America's next great equine sensation, looking to join a famous roll of thoroughbreds to capture the Triple Crown that includes Sir Barton (1919), Gallant Fox (1930), Omaha (1935), War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941), Count Fleet (1943), Assault (1946), Citation (1948), Secretariat (1973), Seattle Slew (1977), Affirmed (1978) and American Pharoah (2015).
The 10-horse field was revealed at the draw for post positions.
"I think, like all of us, that to have a chance we need Justify to wake up on the wrong side of the bed", Pletcher said. His 98 Brisnet speed figure in the Preakness is complimented by his 107 pace figure, which, when added together (205), nearly equals that of his Kentucky Derby performance (204). Notably, Hofburg's team made a decision to skip the Preakness Stakes to run extra length off the Belmont on fresh legs - just as Empire Maker did in his 2003 upset.
Justify fights off a game challenge to win the Preakness by a half-length in a thick fog.

"Let's see if he can do it", said Baffert, who will also send out longshot Restoring Hope in Saturday's main event. "He is on the inside, so he can sort of dictate what's going to go, what's happening". His throw from in front of the mound was high to infielder Luis Guillorme, who rose up to catch it. A win would make him the 13th Triple Crown victor, the second in four years, and would give Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert his second Triple Crown victor and Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith his first. Bravazo came back with a second-place finish in the Preakness. Smith rode him in his last race on the Derby undercard, but will be replaced by Florent Geroux on Saturday. He and teammate Tom Brady have wagered together at the Derby in past years.
This will be the second time Wheels Up has signed on to sponsor a Triple Crown contender. He got sick and missed the Derby and has been waiting to make his US debut in the grueling Belmont.
Because of the Belmont's smaller field and longer distance - 1 1/2 miles as opposed to 1 1/4 for the Derby and 1 3/16 for the Preakness - post positioning isn't necessarily an indicator of how a horse might fare.
