Congratulations to Justify, jockey Mike Smith, and trainer Bob Baffert on Justify becoming the thirteenth Triple Crown winner in history with an impressive wire-to-wire victory in the Belmont Stakes on Saturday! Prior to Saturday’s victory, Justify won an exciting Preakness Stakes following his thrilling victory in the Kentucky Derby. It is quite an accomplishment to win the Triple Crown and I am glad to see Justify join American Pharoah and the other great horses that have accomplished the feat.
Also, congratulations to the Golden State Warriors and the Washington Capitals for winning their respective titles last week. I am particularly happy for the Washington Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin. He is a great player. Now he no longer has to listen to the critics saying, “But he never won the Stanley Cup.”
