LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Triple Crown winner Justify is back at Churchill Downs for a little rest.
He arrived just before a thunderstorm and was greeted by camera-clicking fans intent on getting a shot of horse racing’s newest superstar.
A crowd watched the chestnut colt with a white blaze exit a van after a midday flight from Islip, New York. An assistant trainer walked Justify outside Barn 33. He says the horse will be “taking it easy” for a few days before this weekend’s celebration and his return to California.
