Postcard from Belmont Park
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.
