Justify wins Triple Crown with Belmont Stakes title

    Justify finishes first in the Belmont Stakes, becoming just the 13th horse ever to win the Triple Crown of horse racing.

    Justify etched his name into the history books on Saturday with a victory at the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York.

    That victory, combined with wins at the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, has earned Justify the elusive Triple Crown. He is just the 13th horse ever to accomplish that feat and just the second horse to do so while also being undefeated, joining Seattle Slew who did so in 1977.

    Justify entered the day with 4-to-5 odds to win and he led the race wire to wire out of the number one post.
