Undefeated Triple Crown winner Justify will be celebrated at Churchill Downs Saturday night.

The 2018 Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes champion will be paraded between races during the “Downs After Dark Presented by Budweiser” nighttime racing program.

The timing of Saturday’s parade will be finalized on Wednesday, but it will include a “walkover on the main track and a visit to the track’s paddock and Woodford Reserve Winner’s Circle.”

The first race Saturday at Churchill Downs is set for 6 p.m. ET.
