An athlete is an athlete is an athlete. It doesn’t matter if he is the two legged RAFA Nadal or the four legged JUSTIFY. Both are CHAMPIONS!

 

Wow what a season they both have had. What a year! All records we saw get broken. Justify looked like the calm royal star and just calmly stayed clean and ran. Clean in that dirt. Like oh. Why are all of you other jockeys and horses dirty? Watching the race reminded me of watching the great Usain Bolt. Wow.

 

And RAFAEL. All we can say is that he is the KING OF CLAY. The master of SPINS….

 

And he rarely tires.

 

Editors note: Did you see that horse?! He just ran and ran. He’s just a natural.
