Undefeated horse Justify, who was recently forced into retirement due to a troublesome ankle won at six of these tracks listed.
He dominated in his first start at Santa Anita Park on Feb. 18 and never looked back, winning his next five races in fashion. He won the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs by 2-1/2 lengths, becoming the first horse since Apollo in 1882 to win the Derby without having raced as a 2-year-old.
Justify went on to capture The Preakness Stakes at Pimlico under less-than-ideal conditions with pressure from the field. Then, Justify went on to win The Belmont Stakes in wire-to-wire fashion, winning by 1-3/4 lengths to become the first undefeated Triple Crown winner since Seattle Slew in 1977.
