Mike Smith, 52, becomes the oldest jockey to win Triple Crown

New York (AP) - One of the reasons is the demand of the Hall of Fame Jockey,

Mike Smith when the owner and the apprentice choose to ride the elite completely in the races.

Smith., 52, just knows what to do on horseback.

When to take it When to recover When Kolt or Philly have to make their way on the track.

When to whip when to go.

Smith has seen everything and knows how to handle the pressure.

For example, take the Saturday. Smith faced the pressure to help Justffe take the final step and become the

thirteenth winner of the Triple Crown game.

The world was watching on television and the Internet, and 90,327 fans filled Belmont Park to cheer on Chestnut

Colt, who won the Kentucky Derby and the precession after capturing the world of horse racing after running as a

year 2 He had taken.

Nobody did that before.

The pressure was intense and "Big Money Mike" reacted as an experienced.

He took a nap during the long 13-race card.

It worked perfectly because Smith had put an exclamation point in his brilliant career,

which, was guided to guide Justify to victory in the 1-mile mile race, which was a mile away.

Smith said: "I liked it, and it probably would not have been 10 years ago or 20 years ago."

"He was probably walking on the wall or something like that."

When crossing the three great races for children of 3 years, Smith became the oldest rider to win the Triple Crown.

This is the peak of a race that has won over 5,400 races, including the record of 26 in the Breeders Cup and now

seven triple-crown races. Their mounts have earned more than $ 310 million

To be a child, it is not wrong for a child to leave high school.

Smith said: "I think my mother is happy now." "It's fine, now it's fine."

It was another perfect trip. By breaking at least the number 1 position desired, Smith closed the lead to Justified

and never looked back.

Smith said: "He probably broke better than being out of the other two (derby and presentation) to be honest with

you." "Today went very well, which was very important, he was able to move forward and have comfortable

leadership and let him go at that pace."

Once this happened, there were no other nine foals on the ground.

When the fans praised the winner's circle on the way, Smith silently pointed to Justify.

Instructor Bill Mott said: "Mike is great, obviously, and Justin is probably a great horse, whose Huffberg finished

third, 3½ from Justify." I mean, they're a good combination and they got a job. We saw another triple crown winner.

A lot of people are happy about that. "

Smith is clearly clear at the top of his game in a game where riders are going down and down in their 50s.

The original New Mexico native had won 15 first-grade races last year, including Bob Buffett, Justy's coach and

now the twice triple winner of the crown.

Belfort broke the 37-year drought in 2015 with American Ferroha.

Smith has to keep going. He has reduced his riding schedule to focus on riding the best horse in the game in recent

years. He has ridden such excellent horses in the form of Genyaata, Royal Delta, Songbird, shared confidence and

Game on Dude, but riding JUSTIFY has taken them to a new level.

Victor Espinoza, who rode the American Pharaoh for Triple Crown, did a television business this year in the triple

crown race. It shows a rider's horse reimbursement in the circle of

winners with flowers of women's hats and fast salary.

Smith, who is not looking at anything, is a letter of six or seven mounts and a maintenance piece in the morning.

He went there and did this.

His days now are spent living with a rigorous exercise program that keeps him in the best position to use his vast

experience in handling the best horses in the business.

As things happened this year, do not be surprised that Smith is making a good trip in next year's Triple Crown Race.
