Post­card from Bel­mont Park

Albany Times Union - Sunday - - HORSE RACING - —Tim Wilkin

And why wouldn’t Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith be all smiles when he came back to the jockey’s room at Bel­mont Park early Satur­day night? He had just rid­den Jus­tify to vic­tory in the Bel­mont Stakes, se­cur­ing the Triple Crown for the un­beaten horse. Smith was busy greet­ing friends and ri­val rid­ers as he got back to the room. And he wanted to make sure he talked to ev­ery­one who talked to him. Smith made time for ev­ery­one. Maybe that’s what you do when you make his­tory. Jus­tify be­came the 13th Triple Crown win­ner with his easy win in the Bel­mont.
