Mara, a member of Starlight Racing, stood in the winner's circle after Justify became only the 13th horse in history to win the Triple Crown, having beat the field on Saturday night at the 150th running of The Belmont Stakes.
Collmus' thrilling call of the 150th Belmont STAKES on NBC, watched by 15.3 million television viewers in the 6:45-7 p.m. ET quarter hour, was also heard throughout Belmont Park and cheered by the 90,000+ in attendance, as Justify became only the second horse in history to remain unbeaten in running to a Triple Crown (Seattle Slew, 1977).
After wearing mainly white silks in the previous two triple crown races, Smith on Saturday will don the colors - red with yellow stars - of the China Horse Club, part owner of the three-year-old colt.
Justify, the latest star, made Funny Cide's accomplishments seem nearly ordinary, having broken the "Apollo Curse" to become the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve without racing at age 2 since 1882.
Undefeated Triple Crown victor Justify is scheduled to parade between races during the June 16 night card at Churchill Downs that will feature five graded stakes, including the $500,000 Stephen Foster Handicap (G1).
Kim Jong-un arrives in Singapore for summit with Trump
While Trump spoke positively about his upcoming meeting with Kim, he was vague on the details of what they might actually achieve. USA and North Korean officials are set to meet Monday morning in Singapore to make final preparations for Tuesday's meeting.
Justify is still the fastest horse on the planet, and could potentially win more prizes on the track at the Travers Stakes or even the Breeder's Cup later in the year.
It's good to see two horses win the Triple Crown in a four-year span because coming close was the norm from 1979 to 2014. It's rare to find a horse in this day and age that makes 6 starts in four months, period, let alone win them all.
Justify has to overcome the No. 1 post position and Baffert will be watching closely to see if the colt breaks cleanly from the gate.
So far Justify has answered every question asked of him, and answered it well.
After waiting almost four decades for a Triple Crown victor, lightning has apparently struck twice in a four-year span. "I can't tell you how great it's been and it's going to be". "He's so gifted. He's sent from heaven".
Americans are thanking Canada to show their support for Trudeau
There is no obvious precedent for such a coordinated and acerbic series of attacks by White House advisers on a stalwart USA ally. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks at the final press conference of the G7 summit .
"It's just about getting the horse in a good, happy, comfortable place, wherever that may be", Smith said. Smith slowed the pace midway around the 1 1/2-mile track but maintained a two-length lead heading into the backstretch. If rain falls and turns it sloppy, Justify should feel right at home. Vino Rosso made the most serious move to get within a length but never threatened.
Justify ran the longest race of the series in 2:28.18 and paid $3.60, $3.50 and $2.80. Justify pulled away down the 1,097-yard stretch in front of screaming fans with only 24-1 shot Gronkowski picking off a half-dozen rivals in taking up the chase down the lane. "He was showing me the brilliance, superior horse".
Among those expected to be on hand is New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Completing the order of finish after Vino Rosso were Tenfold, Bravazo, Free Drop Billy, Restoring Hope, Blended Citizen and Noble Indy.
