And off he sails into immortality. His exploits will not again be equaled. An undefeated Triple Crown winner. Others may say they did this or they ran that but none can say they were never beaten.

Another year and Baffert's best horse again has knackered feet.

All horses have leg/foot issues. It's a pretty poor design. And no predators to pick off the weak so only the ones with good legs survive. My qh mare had navicular changes at 9 and Pony was always getting thrush and and abscess despite living in clean dry stall most of the time.

Justify is the worst Triple Crown Winner I have ever witnessed (last 40 years)

Who's Justify? A horse won the triple crown this year? I guess it's not that surprising, very WEAK three year old crop.

LOL, worst Triple Crown winner in 40 years? Well let's look at all five of them.
Secretariat, a tremendous machine.... Seattle Slew, tough as nails. Affirmed, refused to give up.... AP,??????

I really think Justify would have held his own against most of these horses. Secretariat would have crushed them all at 12F.... I think AP would be 5th in this race going 10 furlongs. AP was with a group of merry-go-round horses who loved to chase him....Losing to a common stakes animal in the Travers,(Keen Ice) really hurts AP in my book. The horses from the 70's and early 80's ran on drag strips.... Everyone points to times on Justify's races, he ran on mostly hard dead tracks where he was forced to play near the lead.... I really think that with a faster surface Justify could have run some good times.

Well let's look at all five of them.

Did any of them lose a race?
If no, proceed to the next comparison. If yes, then they were not as good as an undefeated Triple Crown winner.

Simple Logic 101 solves it pretty quickly doesn't it?
