Congratulations!

We are thrilled to wish a hearty congrats to Justify and jockey Mike Smith on their Triple Crown victory!


At the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes on June 9th in Belmont, NY, Mike Smith rode Justify to a win making them the 13th pair to win the prestigious Triple Crown victory of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes.
Smith has ridden great racehorses such as Holy Bull, champion mare, Zenyatta, and the world's richest racehorse Arrogate. He said of Justify, when asked who his favorite horse was, "He's the greatest of all time". Mike Smith uses the Equicizer for warmups and workouts, and has even visited our workshop. His personal Equicizer is named after Zenyatta.
Justify was foaled March 28, 2015 in Kentucky by John D Gunther of Glenwood Farms. He is the first Triple Crown winner to have not raced as a two year old and only the second horse to win with an undefeated record leading up to the race. Other Triple Crown winners in his lineage include Seattle Slew, Secretariat, Count Fleet, War Admiral, Omaha, and Gallant Fox.

There have been 2 Triple Crown victories in the last 3 years and both of the winning jockeys are avid Equicizer users! We are very proud of this fact!
