Holly Smith was at the track on Monday and caught the interview with Assistant Trainer Jimmy Barnes upon arriving back to Churchill Downs after Justify wins Triple Crown at Belmont. Justify is the second undefeated horse to win the Triple Crown after Seattle Slew in 1977. Justify will most likely stay at Churchill Downs until returning to Santa Anita.

We owned her mother so we know this family quite well. She’s just taken some time to come along but is starting to really improve. She broke really well today and that was the key to the race.
