One year ago, Justify sloshed to victory over Good Magic in the Kentucky Derby. While spectators in the infield were caked in mud by the time the "fastest two minutes in sports" had ended, Justify was far cleaner, winning the Kentucky Derby by 2.5 lengths.

He followed that up by predicting Justify's groundbreaking victory in the Belmont Stakes, as well as calling the winners of the Haskell Invitational, Pennsylvania Derby and Lecomte Stakes, just to name a few....
