However, prior to American Pharoah's victory, the last Triple Crown victor had taken place in 1978 when Affirmed won all three races. Justify and Slew are the only two horses to enter and win the Triple Crown as undefeated racers.
Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who made his career on the NY racing circuit, piloted a ideal race to give trainer Bob Baffert his second Triple Crown. If he pulls it off, he'll become the 13th thoroughbred in history to do so and only the second since 1978 when American Pharoah took the title in 2015.
At 52, Mike Smith is the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown. Behind those three, Noble Indy, Vino Rosso and Tenfold were stalking the leader, while the relatively unknown Gronkowski was initially last of the 10-horse field.
Baffert complimented his team for helping the horse, which ran three major, testing races in five weeks.
He said Justify will likely race in the Traverse and the Breeders' Cup in the months ahead before likely retiring as a stallion at the end of the year.
"First and foremost, I want to thank my lord and savior, Jesus Christ, for blessing me with this wonderful day".
Baffert admitted that the sweet-natured American Pharoah will "always be my first love" but said Justify richly deserved his star's status.
With the win, Justify, who did not race as a two-year-old, improved to 6-0 in his young career, which started just 111 days ago.
"It never gets old, " Baffert said. He's the first Triple Crown victor to face that many rivals in the 1½-mile Belmont. He stood so quietly in the starting gate that jockey Mike Smith wondered if he'd respond when it sprang open.
