Henderson resident and Hall of Fame horse racing writer Jerry Izenberg witnessed another Triple Crown winner on Saturday. Justify became the second horse in three years to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes. Izenberg has witnessed five Triple Crown winners: Secretariat in 1973, Seattle Slew in 1977, Affirmed in 1978, American Pharoah in 2015 and now Justify. He said the jury is still out on where Justify will rank with the other great horses he has covered. But Izenberg says no horse compares to Secretariat, at least in his mind. “Honestly, you’re talking about absolutely great horses with these five Triple Crown winners. I’d have to say there’s Secretariat, and then there’s the other four horses — and that’s not to denigrate the other four horses."
