Justify, not Justified. And actually, he was in second place by a nose around the first turn. Then he regained the lead. I was watching it on TV about twenty minutes ago.

Woops.... I forgot which one it was XD Oh... Well my family is not good at noticing those things XD

Maybe that was just me . . . the announcers kept saying "wire to wire" meaning he was in the lead the whole time, but to me it looked like Hofberg (another horse, finishing in third place) was in the lead by a nose around the first turn. Not that it matters, because JUSTIFY WON!!!!!!! 13TH TRIPLE CROWN EVER!!!!!!

Jun 9, 2018

WAIT, HE HAS WON IT 13 TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAAAAAATTTT?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!??!?!?!??!?!

No, no. The three races that make up the Triple Crown are the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes. Each year, these races are run in this order. The Kentucky Derby winner then can choose to move on to the Preakness. If the same horse wins the Preakness, then its owners try for the Belmont Stakes. The Belmont stakes is the hardest and longest, 1 and a half miles around the track. If the same horse that won the other two wins the Belmont Stakes, they have won the "Triple Crown" which is the combination of these three races. Only twelve horses have done it in the past one hundred years. This year, Justify did it to become the thirteenth horse to do it in Triple Crown history.

Oh well I knew all that but that is crazy that only 13 have now won the Triple Crown in the past one-hundred years. I mean I know that it is really hard to do, but people have got to have more determination than that.

Well, this is an incredibly hard profession, and it isn't too uncommon for jockeys to fall from the saddle because of the speeds their horses are traveling. Of these jockeys that fall, some can have injuries that can prevent them from riding and even walking ever again. So there is plenty of determination, but there are also risks. Not to mention that sometimes other horses will come in from behind and steal the lead, etc., etc. So just about anything can happen in a horse race.

 

Kentucky Derby: 1.25 miles (one and a quarter)

Preakness Stakes: 1.1875 miles (one and three sixteenths)

Belmont Stakes: 1.5 miles (one and a half)

Wow. My family (much to my annoyance) are not very into horses, the Kentucky Derby is about the only horse event I can get them to watch, and I was competing in the Pacific Region cadet competition the same day as the derby so I couldn't watch. Now I wish I had been able to watch it

Don't worry, I didn't see the Kentucky Derby this year either. The only race in the Triple Crown that I saw was the Belmont Stakes, in which Justify won, and therefore became the thirteenth horse in history to win the Triple Crown.

Jun 10, 2018

Yeah, I didn't watch any of the races

Jun 10, 2018

Well, I can fill you in. There was this two-hour-long buildup, in which a bunch of men in suits were talking about horses and they showed the new trophy but mentioned that it might not be won. Then the men started shouting about how the horses were changing positions when the race started. A bright chestnut with a wide blaze named Justify ran around a big dirt ring and won the race. People clapped.

Jun 10, 2018

This is what happened on all of the three Triple Crown races.

Jun 10, 2018

XDD Yup that sums it up. I only went to the Rolex (Now Landrover ) And watched the Belmont Stakes. I know it is REALLY risky. Did you hear abotu that mare in 2008 in the Kentucky Derby? She slowed down and then her two front leg ankles broke.... It was extremly sad for me but I didn't see it because I was only 1.

Jun 10, 2018

Oh wow . . . I hadn't heard that

Jun 10, 2018

Yeah...... It happened long time ago. She was one of the about 2 or 3 mares that every really entered horse racing or at least entered the Kentucky derby.....

  • Have you guys noticed that Rockwing and his mate, Birchcloud, never have colts only fillies? And after Petalcloud abandons Frostfire to Rockwing she becomes barren? I think the Ancestors of Anok have power over living pegasi. I think they watched over the steeds and saw Rock wing get nasty and they knew he would make his colts the same monsters he was. And they cursed Petalcloud then she betrayed her colt. But the Ancestors had pity on Frostfire because he was forced into bullying. His true nature was revealed when Starfrost became known. His love was revealed
