A crowd watched the chestnut colt with a white blaze exit a van after a midday flight from Islip, New York.

'The plan was to sit off Justify, ' the trainer said. "Then we'll see which direction we need to head as far as training wise".

Owners of the latest Triple Crown victor said Justify will get a well-deserved break and then race again this year, although no date or location has been targeted yet after the colt came out of his Belmont Stakes victory in good condition.

Baffert took American Pharoah to Saratoga in August 2015 and the Triple Crown victor was upset by Keen Ice in the Travers.

Queens, N.Y., native Mike Repole, co-owner of fourth-place Vino Rosso and last-place Noble Indy in the field of 10, hopes Belmont Park stewards will question jockey Florent Geroux about his handling of Restoring Hope, Justify's stablemate, for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert.

"Standard procedure has the three stewards closely monitor the race as it is being run and to review the race on digital format in instances where the stewards themselves have concern or when an objection is leveled by jockeys or trainers competing in the event", a spokesman for the New York State Gaming Commission said in a statement released to The Post on Monday.

Justify led all the way in achieving one of the sports world's toughest feats 45 years to the day that Secretariat won the Belmont by a record 31 lengths.

There was a brief noise as Justify emerged, but fans mostly concentrated on positioning their cameras.

"Good to see the king come back", said John Asher, Churchill Downs Vice President Racing Communications.

"He's become a household name and I'm looking forward to his next race as much as [everyone else]".

"It's awesome", said Baffert, who had Triple Crown near-misses with Silver Charm (1997), Real Quiet (1998) and War Emblem (2002).
