Belmont Stakes live stream: How to watch Justify go for the Triple Crown without a TV

Justify charged out of the gate and never gave up the lead, powering his way to victory at the Belmont Stakes to become just the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown. Before American Pharoah, he had won the first two legs of the Triple Crown three times, with Silver Charm, in 1997, Real Quiet (1998) and Point Given (2001) and failed to complete the feat before American Pharoah did it to become the first Triple Crown victor in 37 years, since Affirmed in 1978.

At 6-0, he joins Seattle Slew in 1977 as the only two undefeated Triple Crown winners; he's the first to sweep the series without racing at age 2 (because of a pulled muscle); and he's the only horse to beat nine rivals in the Belmont with a Triple try on the line.

Justify became the second undefeated Triple Crown victor after Seattle Slew in 1977, finishing first in a field of 10.

The late bloomer won the 150th Belmont Stakes in NY by 1¾ lengths on Saturday, leading all the way to give the sport its 13th Triple Crown champion.

Baffert was quick to pay tribute to 52-year-old Smith, for whom it was a first Triple Crown success.

Sixteen weeks ago, no one knew what to make of Justify - except Hall of Fame horse racing trainer Bob Baffert.

Bob Baffert was killing time with his kids on the backside at Belmont Park on Saturday, waiting for the horses to be called to the paddock for the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes, when someone mentioned that, just like three years prior, the kid in the Burger King costume was in attendance. It may seem like those last few Derby finishers are just going to be also-rans, but anything can happen in horse racing.

Of course, the race that Baffert and Smith really want to win is the Belmont Stakes. They were never really challenged after that, with Gronkowski finishing second, Hofburg third, Bravazo sixth and Noble Indy in 10th and last place.

With Justify on the verge of becoming the second Triple Crown victor in three years, Elmont, New York has become the center of the sports world on June 9. There is also, of course, the risk of defeat, which takes away some of the invincibility of a Triple Crown victor.

"He's as impressive as Justify was as a yearling", Gunther said.

Justify established his dominance right from the start this year by winning his first three races by a combined 19 lengths. Baffert said he felt confident, not stressed, during the run-up to the race.

Justify reached full speed at midstretch, and it was clear he would win the race and earn the Triple Crown. Baffert won in 2015 with American Pharoah.

Smith told reporters, "I just want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing us on this afternoon, and blessing us with this fantastic horse". He's sent from heaven, it's just incredible.

"I think my mother's happy now", Smith said.

"I can't describe the emotions going through my body right now", he continued. "He is a Triple Crown victor and he's undefeated", said Repole, emphasizing his admiration for the powerful, 6-for-6 colt.
