Justify the heavy favorite to pull off historic Belmont Stakes, Triple Crown win

Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner Justify will make a run for the horse-racing record books Saturday as he attempts to win the Belmont Stakes and complete a historic sweep of the Triple Crown.

Justify would become just the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown and just the second undefeated horse to capture the elusive prize. Only Seattle Slew in 1977 has accomplished that feat. Majestic Prince in 1969, Smarty Jones in 2004 and Big Brown in 2008 went into the Belmont Stakes undefeated after winning the Kentucky Derby and Preakness but were beaten as big favorites in the third leg of the Triple Crown.
