Victor of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, Justify is looking to become just the second horse to win the Triple Crown since 1978.

Since the field far less crowded than the Kentucky Derby, post position is far less crucial - horses can't be forced all the way to the outside or lost in a pack of 20 horses if they get out to a slow start. "We'll deal with it".

In recent memory, multiple players have fallen victim to the Belmont, from California Chrome, the 2014 rags-to-riches story who broke badly from the gate and finished fourth, to 2004's Smarty Jones, edged by Birdstone just 70 yards away from victory.

The unflappable colt has already erased the "curse of Apollo", winning the 144th Kentucky Derby despite having never run as a 2-year-old, and secured the Preakness despite a thick fog and sloppy conditions.

Kim Jong Un's team reportedly indicated Kim Jong Un's entourage preferred to stay at an island resort near the coast. But on Friday, after meeting with North Korea's Kim Yong-chol, he announced the Sinapore-based talks were back on.


Baffert threw out a first pitch in a major league game for the first time since 2015 after American Pharoah's ride into history. The Kentucky Derby's 17th-place finisher is at 9-1. "Once you become part of the Wheels Up family, the magic happens-everyone saw that three years ago when Wheels Up sponsored American Pharoah and he won the Triple Crown at Belmont".

Shurmur, who was hired in January, also recently threw out a first pitch at Citi Field before a Mets game as he comes into focus in the NY spotlight.

The full slate of post positions and morning-line odds was revealed on Tuesday afternoon: No1 Justify (4-5), No2 Free Drop Billy (30-1), No3 Bravazo (8-1), No4 Hofburg (9-2), No5 Restoring Hope (30-1), No6 Gronkowski (12-1), No7 Tenfold (12-1), No8 Vino Rosso (8-1), No9 Noble Indy (30-1), No10 Blended Citizen (15-1). In 2013, Lukas brought Oxbow (Awesome Again) to Belmont to follow up a win in the Preakness with a runner-up finish.
