Justify went wire-to-wire to win the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, and in doing so, became the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown.

Incredibly easy victory.

Justify — a 4/5 odds favorite and trained by Bob Baffert — becomes the second Triple Crown winner over the last four years (American Pharoah did it in 2015), but just the second over the last 40 years.

Clutch performance by one hell of a horse.
