Justify became only the 13th Triple Crown winner in horse-racing history after winning the Belmont Stakes in New York on Saturday. He previously won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness to secure horse racing’s top prize. Justify became only the second horse to win the Triple Crown without ever losing a race, following Seattle Slew in 1977. Justify won the Belmont starting from the rail, 45 years to the day after Secretariat achieved that feat.
