How tall is Justify?
At 16.3 hands, Justify isn’t the tallest horse Bob Baffert has trained, but he’s up there.
How old is Justify?
In one of Baffert’s stalls was a giant three-year-old chestnut colt named Justify, who was not only striking – “The type of horse that painters paint and sculptors cast,” I would write, a little floridly, two months later, after Justify had become famous – but also fast, which is not always the case.
Is Justify bigger than Secretariat?
Justify’s final time of 2:04.20 was the Derby’s second-slowest in 28 years, but he won easily without strain. Justify is also larger than most rivals. Justify is 100 pounds heavier than Pharoah and nearly 150 pounds heavier than Secretariat was when he finished the Triple Crown.

Who was faster Seabiscuit or Secretariat?
SeaBiscuit was the horse for his time, but Secretariat in my estimation is THE Superhorse. Secretariat still holds the fastest time for each of the Triple Crown races, winning the Kentucky Derby in 1 minute, 59.4 seconds, the Preakness in 1:53 and the Belmont in 2:24.

Who sired American Pharoah?
American Pharoah Cements Status as All-Time Great with Breeders’ Cup Classic Win. Now, there is no debate. The questions have been asked and answered. With American Pharoah’s dominant Breeders’ Cup Classic win, you can no longer deny that he is a legendary horse whose name belongs alongside the all-time greats.
Why is American Pharoah misspelled?
Still, wish Pharoah was Pharaoh. We’ve been through this before but let’s do it again: The bad spelling came from a mistake in the horse’s registration paperwork. The Courier-Journal of Louisville reported that a fan submitted the name of the horse during an online contest, and spelled “pharaoh” wrong.
