Justify arrives at Coolmore America

1 min read

Justify (USA) (Scat Daddy {USA}) arrived at Coolmore America's Ashford Stud on Monday morning.

“It’s a great day,” said Coolmore’s Adrian Wallace. “To receive a horse like Justify back here, he’s by Scat Daddy who we stood here throughout his career and sadly we lost him too early. But this is an able replacement for Scat Daddy. He’s a very, very classy horse. He had a stellar career, 112 days, six races undefeated and an undefeated Triple Crown winner. To come here to the same farm where American Pharoah stands is a huge honour for us, and a huge responsibility to this industry and it’s one that we don’t take lightly.”

Coolmore becomes the fourth stud in history (after Claiborne, Calumet and Spendthrift) to stand two American Triple Crown winners.

“He looks beautiful. He’s always been, to me, the ultimate-looking Thoroughbred. He almost looks like a big quarter horse. Physically and mentally he’s everything we look for in a horse," commented Justify's trainer Bob Baffert.
