6/9/18 - Seattle Slew Descendent Justify Becomes 13th Triple Crown Winner

The Slew Crew sends its hearty congratulations to JUSTIFY (Scat Daddy) and his connections — owners China Horse Club International Ltd., WinStar Farm, Starlight Racing and Head of Plains Partners LLC; breeder John Gunther; trainer Bob Baffert; jockey Mike Smith and all his barn crew — on becoming the 13th Triple Crown winner on June 9 with a 1 3/4-length victory in the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park.

The strapping chestnut colt has six wins from six starts this year, and he joins Seattle Slew as the only other undefeated Triple Crown winner.

A Kentucky-bred, Justify was produced from Stage Magic (Ghostzapper), who is out of the Pulpit mare Magical Illusion, a Grade 1-placed winner. Pulpit is by A.P. Indy, Seattle Slew's Horse of the Year son, who is out Weekend Surprise (Secretariat), meaning the newest Triple Crown winner boasts the blood of two Triple Crown winners.
