They can come from an old, sweet song, from a favorite movie, or from a magnificent orange thoroughbred who does things that were considered impossible.

At the moment, the racing world can't get enough of Justify. Our superficial age loves to proclaim that whatever just happened is the best ever. Restoring Hope will have a new jockey Saturday since Smith will be busy riding Justify. "This effort has reinforced our belief that America is a great place to do racing", said Teo Ah Khing, founder of the China Horse Club that is a co-owner of Justify. The only other unbeaten Triple Crown victor was Seattle Slew in 1977.

Vino Rosso won his first two career starts late previous year in impressive fashion before contesting two Kentucky Derby prep stakes at Tampa Bay Downs.

Before Saturday, only Slew had swept with a ideal record (8-for-8).

So when American Pharoah won the Triple Crown, the hoards of joyous horse racing fans shook Belmont Park, right outside New York City, to its core.

Especially considering another Stage Magic offspring, The Lieutenant, won a Grade 3 race last month, giving the mare two recent graded states winners.

Just 12 horses have swept the Triple Crown, one of the rarest feats in sports.

Wallace got special joy out of watching the race in the Belmont stands with his father Jim and brother David.

"It's been the longest, quickest journey", Baffert said Sunday. "I think I see a lot of resemblance in these two, the way they move". He won his first three races by a combined 19 lengths, making trainer Bob Baffert a believer.

He made it through University of Pennsylvania, so he was exposed to a quality education, but he's still an idiot'. He delivered his response on his Twitter account while on his way back to the United States.

In winning the Kentucky Derby, Justify etched his name alongside 143 other celebrated champions. The Belmont Stakes post time is expected to be just after 6:30 ET on Saturday.

Mara, a member of Starlight Racing, raved about jockey Mike Smith. In the Derby, Smith was in the white and green of WinStar Farm, the other major shareholder in racing's young king.

Justify is set to return Monday to Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

"For him to close up that much ground off a really easy pace, it was a remarkable race that he ran".

Gunther guesses Justify's next race will be US$1.25-million Grade 1 Travers Stakes on August 25 at Saratoga, with an eventual appearance at the Breeder's Cup.

"Pharoah made so many people feel good", Baffert said. "We'll sit down and figure out a little game plan after that, but we have nothing at all".

The B.C-based breeder of Triple Crown victor Justify says he and his family are honoured to be a part of history.

His days now are spent staying in shape with a rigorous workout schedule that keeps him in top condition to use his vast experience in handling the best horses in the business. We'll be rooting for Justify - the Triple Crown is like nothing else in sport - but betting on Hofburg.

"He was showing me the same signs (as American Pharoah)", Baffert said of Justify.
