Belmont Stakes: How To Bet $100

Justify achieved immortality Saturday when he won the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, NY, just the 13th horse to clinch the American Triple Crown.

Then, at this past Saturday's Belmont Stakes in NY, the dream came true for owners WinStar Farm, China Horse Club & SF Racing, who'd sold Justify's breeding rights for an historically high $60 million.

The chestnut colt is the second horse to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont, improving to 6-0 in a racing career that began on February 18.

He'd won the first two legs of the Triple Crown on sloppy tracks, charging to a 2 1/2-length victory in the 1 1/4-mile Kentucky Derby on May 5, and then pulling out a a half-length win in the 1 3/16-mile Preakness on May 19.

Running from the rail post and facing horses who are better rested could derail Justify's bid for horse racing's Triple Crown.

The horse I was intrigued by in that race was Quip... who finished last. But we have to have the horse, and Bob made me feel pretty good leaving the paddock.

Hofburg (+450) is a deserving second favorite on the Belmont Stakes betting lines but is running from gate 4 and that could limit his chance to break from the outside.

A colt with a Canadian connection has made history as just the 13th horse to win horse racing's Triple Crown. He won his first three races by a combined 19 lengths, making trainer Bob Baffert a believer.

Gronkowski, named for the National Football League player, finished second, after having been last for the first half of the race.

The crowd of roughly 90,000 fans and bettors around the world clearly expect Justify to win the Triple Crown.

The morning after the Belmont Stakes questions quickly turned to what's next for the newest Triple Crown victor.

"It never gets old".

Baffert said he was "in awe" of Pharoah when he won, and "in shock" seeing him win.

"To have the opportunity to be here, to make history like this, is an incredible feeling, and these horses. you buy them, or whatever - a horse like this, just kind of happens". But trainer Chad Brown has probably seen all he wants to see of the Triple Crown champion for the time being. He was the first horse in more than 100 years to win the Derby without ever having raced as a two-year-old horse, The New York Times reported.

Smith said: "This horse is so gifted - he's sent from heaven".

He added: "He was showing me the same signs (as American Pharoah), the brilliance, a superior horse".

Baffert said Sunday that the "plan" for Restoring Hope, which shared the worst odds to win (30-1) with Noble Indy and seventh-place Free Drop Billy, was to "sit off Justify".
