Other Triple Crown winners include Sir Barton (1919), War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941), Count Fleet (1943), Assault (1946), Citation (1948) and Secretariat (1973). Americans love dynasties, whether in politics, sports, or musical acts, and the Triple Crown is racing's greatest dynastic concept, an institution that predates every major championship event except the World Series. Now, three years after American Pharoah ended the sport's 37-year drought, he did it again. He's just an unbelievable horse.

Approaching the quarter pole, with the crowd on its feet and screaming, Gronkowski was hitting his best stride from far back, picking off a half-dozen rivals to gain third even as Vino Rosso was moving into second.

Repole also co-owns 10th-place finisher Noble Indy with WinStar Farm, the majority owner of Justify. Blink and you would have missed him, for all his social media presence and the blanket Justify coverage from NBC since his win in the Santa Anita Derby.

Justify certified his place in racing immortality when he won 150th Belmont S. (G1), defeating Gronkowski by almost to length to become the 13th victor of the historic Triple Crown.

After landing at Louisville International Airport, Justify was loaded onto a van for a three-mile police escort to the backstretch of Churchill Downs. "He looked like a bodyguard making sure nobody got close to Justify". We're looking forward to sharing him more.
