The number thirteen has a reputation for being unlucky, but not if you're Justify - the 13th Triple Crown champion! Unraced as a 2-year-old, the journey from his maiden race to Triple Crown glory took a meer 122 days.
Owned by China Horse Club, Head of Plains Partners LLC, Starlight Racing and WinStar Farm, Justify is trained by the legendary Bob Baffert. Piloted by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith in all three Triple Crown races, Justify won the Kentucky Derby by 2 1/2 lengths on a sloppy track, ending the 136-year-old "curse of Apollo." In a fog-cloaked Preakness Stakes, Smith and Justify overcame challengers Good Magic and Bravazo to again claim victory.
To clinch the Triple Crown, Justify dominated the Belmont Stakes, leading from wire to wire and winning by almost 2 lengths! His feats made Smith the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown, and Baffert the second trainer in history to have two Triple Crown winners.
This Limited Edition artist's resin captures Justify in full extension! Comes with a base with brass plaque and certificate of authenticity.
