LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – 4 times Bob Baffert has taken a Triple Crown hopeful to the Belmont Stakes; winning it once with American Pharoah in 2015. Silver Charm, Real Quiet and War Emblem came up short.
Justify will be Baffert’s fifth to run for racing’s biggest achievement.
If he does it, he’ll have to run and win the longest race of his career at 1 1/2 mile.
At this point, can you do anything as a trainer to try and prep for that?
Hear from Baffert in the video.
