LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Triple Crown Winner Justify has taken his spot in history at the Kentucky Derby Museum.

On Wednesday morning, a banner was raised in honor of Justify's historic Triple Crown win. It now hangs in the museum's Great Hall.

The banner features the WinStar Farm silks, which jockey Mike Smith wore when he won this year's Kentucky Derby.

"There was so many firsts for Justify. You know, broke the curse of Apollo, numerous other things and he had such a great career in such a short time. So we couldn't be more excited to celebrate that legacy here at the museum," said Patrick Armstrong, president of the Kentucky Derby Museum.

This marks the 13th Triple Crown banner raised at the museum.

 Armstrong says there will be more "Justify things" happening at the Museum later this year.

The horse is now retired at Winstar Farms outside Versailles.
