Justify is the 13th Triple Crown winner, having won the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes leading wire-to-wire. Since he never raced as a two-year-old, I'm hoping he'll race next year, but breeding rights may nix that.
Mike Smith got his first Triple Crown as a jockey at age 52, and Bob Baffert has his second, only the 2nd trainer to win US horse racing's Triple Crown twice.
Gronkowski was the surprise of the race. Having never run more than a mile or run on dirt, but with a great ride by Jose Ortiz, he rallied from a slow break and being dead last and far behind to finish second. Well done. I won't doubt Chad Brown again.

As depressed as I am considering the state of politics in this country these days...at least there is an absolutely gorgeous Appy draft-type lead pony at Keeneland that I am completely in love with.

I miss riding.

I never did become a confident rider, but I loved it.
