Justify: Defeating a Curse, Youth, and the Weather

34745525_10212625167451887_1710849644826722304_nIt’s a strange situation that racing finds itself in: we’re on the cusp of another potential Triple Crown, and compared to the Pharoah fever in 2015, the reception this year has been a bit lackluster. At times, it almost feels like we’re going into Belmont weekend without the storied three-race series on the line, and that there isn’t a stand-out among the sophomore class this year.

In Loving Memory: Penny Chenery

Near this spot
Are deposited the Remains of one
Who possessed Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferocity,
And all the Virtues of Man without his Vices.
