Justify becomes 13th Triple Crown horse

Undefeated thoroughbred Justify lived up to the hype Saturday, leading the field in the Belmont from start to finish, becoming the 13th Triple Crown winner and only the second undefeated Triple Crown racehorse in history. Jockey Mike Smith, 52, already a Hall of Famer, became the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown.

The Triple Crown was last won in 2015 by American Pharoah.
