YONKERS, NY, Wednesday, June 13, 2018-Every now and then, Mike Lizzi is sent off premises for community service.

Saturday afternoon (June 9th) found Yonkers Raceway's crack photographer at Belmont Park, chronicling Justify's and jockey Mike Smith's trip to the Triple Crown and horse-racing history.

As was the case with American Pharoah's Belmont Stakes back in 2015, we asked Lizzi to sort through his camera bag and select his favorites.

"When a Triple Crown is on the line, the Belmont Stakes is a glorious event," he said. "I think the fans were just as loud as the 2015 Belmont for American Pharoah's Triple Crown."

Some of Lizzi's handiwork accompanies this release. Apparently, he's become so proficient, Bob Baffert has requested him take his next driver's license photo.
