Justify and American Pharoah are taking similar paths to a possible Triple Crown win.
American Pharoah in May of 2015 and Justify this past week in Louisville, Kentucky as he prepares for the final and longest leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes.
Baffert says everything is going great with Justify’s training for the June 9 race at Belmont Park in New York. Similar words were spoken about American Pharoah just three years prior after he worked a half mile in his first breeze since winning the Preakness.
Martin Garcia was aboard American Pharoah in 2015 as he galloped and was also on Justify.
American Pharoah worked his half mile in 48 seconds flat but Justify recorded a time of 46.80 seconds in his run.

Pretty interesting side by side look at Justify and American Pharoah’s pre-Belmont workouts. Pharoah went a furlong more on the gallop out. #TripleCrown #Justify #BelmontStakes150 pic.twitter.com/0GC0aovQQ3
