"Obviously, they'll be at the big events more than others and they're all worthy".

"The attitude is stay humble or be humbled", said Asmussen, 52. "But if you look at him you'd never know it". Ortiz won the Belmont a year ago with Tapwrit, while Brown has yet to win it.

But no horse has a better track record at defying the odds than the favorite, Justify.

However, the volume of concern, and the cacophony of the conspiracy chorus, wasn't exclusively from the media. Colbert said. "She might hear it from down the hall". "It's her style and we just have to accept that".

Justify, who previously won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, is one win away from becoming the second Triple Crown victor in the last four decades. "Being the leader of a team, you try to make the right decision".

"He was, like, 'Let's get it on, '" said the trainer. No horse has won from that post since 2003, and trainer Bob Baffert called the post his "least favorite".

Justify (Scat Daddy-Stage Magic) - Breeder John D. Gunther's Glennwood Farm, agent, consigned Justify to the September Sale, where he sold for $500,000 to China Horse Club and Maverick Racing. That potential conflict doesn't bother Wolf, who has known Pletcher for 17 years and hired him to train his horses but is mindful of the demands for his talents.

"I'd like to see a nice day", said Baffert.

"I've got it down to what I think is a science with my fitness level, so if I hadn't ridden in four, five days I could jump on one and it doesn't take nothing out", he said.

"To me, it's like, you'll hear football coaches that are specialized in their kicking game or whatever", Baffert said Tuesday at Citi Field, the site of the draw for the 150th Belmont Stakes. Three years later, Justify might pull off the same feat, joining the eleven other iconic horses: Affirmed, Seattle Slew, Secretariat, Citation, Assault, Count Fleet, Whirlaway, War Admiral, Omaha, Gallant Fox, and the first ever Triple Crown victor, 1919's Sir Barton. He is an even-paced runner who rarely loses touch with the front of the field which gives him an advantage in a long distance race like the Belmont where front-runners are nearly certain to tire. Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons trained Triple Crown winners Gallant Fox and Omaha in 1930 and 1935.
