You may win the Kentucky Derby in Kentucky. But to win the Triple Crown, it has to be done in Queens. Justify crosses the wire at the Belmont Stakes to become 13th horse to claim the sport’s holy grail.

The crowds at Belmont Park, the biggest race track in the country, was capped at 90,000 for this year’s Belmont Stakes. Fans were hoping to see one of the sport’s rarest moments — a Triple Crown performance.

No one left the big old track disappointed — even those who bet against Justify — because the front-running three-year-old horse did exactly as he was expected and accomplished the feat.

Here’s what it looked like.
