Horse racing's latest superstar will attempt to become the 13th Triple Crown victor in U.S. Thoroughbred racing and he has a great chance to accomplish the feat.
The big chestnut colt paid only $3.80 to win on a $2 bet.
"He would be the most valuable stallion outside Frankel ever to stand in the world, and we are fortunate to be part of the story", Field said.
"It definitely seemed to me he was more of an offensive lineman than a racehorse trying to win the Belmont, and Justify was a running back trying to run for a touchdown".
"I think it's very fitting that Gronkowski finished second again", Mara cracked.
Just 12 horses have swept the Triple Crown, one of the rarest feats in sports.
The race will mark the 150th running of the Belmont.
Turning for home full of running, he looked to have all his rivals toiling, although the ex-Jeremy Noseda-trained Gronkowski - a victor at Newcastle in March - ran an unbelievable race to be second, having trailed the field by some distance from the stalls.

Trump was seen in public was May 10, when she joined the president at Joint Base Andrews to welcome home three American hostages freed from North Korea.
Justify's victory gives racing its second Triple Crown victor of the decade.
Gunther says while he and others behind the horse could barely contain their nerves as the Belmont began, the horse - true to character - stayed serene. In his first race on American soil, on a professional dirt track and going more than a mile, the horse Gronk went from last place to an oh-so-close second place finish over the course of the race. Saturday's race will be run 45 years to the day that Secretariat ended a 25-year Triple Crown drought.
He triumphed at the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby on April 7, earning him enough points to qualify for the Kentucky Derby. He won the Kentucky Derby by 2 1/2 lengths and then survived a half-length victory in the Preakness, both on sloppy tracks. "He's a remarkable horse to run in all three legs as well as he did".
Justify, who did not race as a two-year-old, is now undefeated in six starts.
So what are the races Justify could participate in?
The fashion scene at the Belmont Stakes is as diverse as NY itself.
Like "Big Red", as Secretariat was lovingly called, Justify (an even bigger "Big Red", at 16.3 hands and 1,380 pounds, compared to a typical 1,100-pound thoroughbred), drew the No. 1 post. Finally finding room through which to squeeze midway through, Hofburg had to shift outward or else risk losing his momentum, but the result was a five-wide run that might have taken too much out of him. Restoring Hope will have a new jockey Saturday since Smith will be busy riding Justify. It shows a horse eating the flowers off a women's hat and the jockey reimbursing her in the winner's circle with Quick Pay. Superior horse. I mean, he could have won every race on the undercard today.
