Am I the only one who kinda liked the Cartier trophy better? Although they did make this new one look very nice under the tv lighting I remember from the pictures I saw earlier not feeling too impressed.

I am not as nervous about this as I was before AP's Belmont, probably because I don't expect Justify to actually win (12 furlongs is 12 furlongs). If he does it'll be a pleasant surprise.

All the horses look a little hot, Hofberg looks mentally cool, Justify a little high

I guess Mike Smith saw that all the TC winners won on the front end so he's going there now? Not sure how well it'll work. Hopefully they won't let him loaf.

That was...underwhelming? It seemed like nobody even tried to challenge him most of the race.

Ok I'll stop being a buzzkill now.

Well we now have 13 Triple Crown winners!

Didn’t think he’d make it for a second but he sure did prove me wrong.

Anyone think we’re getting another “Golden Age” or racing like the 70?

Wasn’t a fan of the Baffert double but I like Mike Smith enough to make up for it.

I agree Miss Woodford... not gonna lie.

Great run by Gronkowski! Hofburg did nicely too but Justify is just too good!
