Private aviation company to sponsor Justify in Belmont race

Justify could become U.S. racing's 13th Triple Crown winner on Saturday

It's tough to break into the game and even tougher to break through to the upper echelon. Three of Justify's six career races - all wins - were on muddy or sloppy tracks, although his speed figures have dropped after having to lumber through the slop of the Derby and the Preakness over the past 4½ weeks.

"Obviously, they'll be at the big events more than others and they're all worthy".

Smith has curtailed his work schedule to focus on riding the best horses in the biggest races.

Asmussen said it can be a long, hard journey.

"I'm very fortunate. This is my 5th time going for a Triple Crown and it never gets old", Baffert said. His resume also includes offensive coordinator stints with St. Louis and Philadelphia, and two years as head coach of the Cleveland Browns. In 1919, when Sir Barton won what would not be regularly termed the Triple Crown until 1930, the 3-year-old won the Kentucky Derby on May 10, the Preakness on May 14 and the Belmont Stakes on June 11, with a win in the May 24 Withers thrown in for good measure.

Baffert and Lukas trained quarter horses before moving up to thoroughbreds and paying their dues schooling them for the daily grind.

Tim Lincecum won't be making a major league comeback with the Texas Rangers, who had signed the two-time NL Cy Young victor during spring training with plans for him to be a reliever. Justify is the latest among the 22 Kentucky Derby (G1) winners and 24 Preakness (G1) winners produced by Keeneland sales.

"The problem I have with Justify is he's coming out of an extremely tiring race, the Preakness really took a lot out of him", Goldberg told SportsLine.




Besides winning the Eclipse Award seven times, Pletcher has established a reputation for strength in numbers when it comes to graded stakes contenders.

In the 2010 Kentucky Derby, Baffert had the favorite with Lookin At Lucky, who broke from the No. 1 hole. "When the horses come to him, he sort of takes off again".

All Spring I was entralled with a horse who had run once or twice in his life, but had shown remarkable talent on the track.

Baffert seeks his second Triple Crown three years after leading American Pharoah into the history books as the 12th horse to sweep the Derby, Preakness and Belmont.

The full slate of post positions and morning-line odds was revealed on Tuesday afternoon: No1 Justify (4-5), No2 Free Drop Billy (30-1), No3 Bravazo (8-1), No4 Hofburg (9-2), No5 Restoring Hope (30-1), No6 Gronkowski (12-1), No7 Tenfold (12-1), No8 Vino Rosso (8-1), No9 Noble Indy (30-1), No10 Blended Citizen (15-1).

He's right: It is a who's-who of trainers.

SMT will provide fan-engagement technology solutions for NBC Sports Group's broadcast of the 150th Belmont Stakes.

Plus, as they say, pace makes the race. "You've got guys that have been there, done that and the whole experience is such a challenge".
