Tyler Gaffalione has become horse racing’s rising star jockey after winning the Preakness and can add to his already impressive resume in the Belmont.

In a Kentucky Derby lacking a dominant favorite, two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer Bob Baffert saddles the top three choices. Game Winner is the prerace favorite, albeit a tepid one at 9-2. Improbable and Roadster were installed as the co-second choices at 5-1.

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Justify has arrived in New York ahead of Saturday’s Belmont Stakes. The colt will try to sweep the Triple Crown. American Pharoah did it in 2015 to become the 12th horse to do so. Justify traveled to Belmont Park on a flight from Louisville and a van ride from an airport on Long Island.
The only thing Bob Baffert wanted to do in horse racing was win the Triple Crown. Been there, done that. The Hall of Fame trainer captured horse racing’s biggest prize in 2015 with American Pharoah. Justify could become racing’s 13th Triple Crown winner and second in four years if he wins the Belmont Stakes. Says Baffert: “I’ve won it so I’m actually going to enjoy this a little bit more.”
Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Justify will break from the No. 1 post as the early 4-5 favorite in the Belmont Stakes as the colt tries to complete a Triple Crown sweep. Trainer Bob Baffert is not a fan of the inside post for his horses no matter what the race.
Triple Crown contender Justify is drawing comparisons to American Pharoah even after a very different path to the Belmont. Trainer Bob Baffert sees similarities in the two super horses as Justify is on the verge of being the second Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.

Justify splashed through the slop to win the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, becoming the first colt in 136 years to wear the roses after not racing as a 2-year-old.
