What kind of horse was justify?
Versailles, Kentucky, U.S. Justify (foaled March 28, 2015) is a champion American Thoroughbred racehorse who is the thirteenth and most recent winner of the American Triple Crown. He also was the first horse since Apollo in 1882 to win the Kentucky Derby without racing as a two-year-old.
What happened to justify the horse?

Did Barbaro sire any foals?
A stallion can father foals through artificial insemination or embryo transfer even after he’s dead. But Barbaro was a special kind of racing horse called a Thoroughbred. Barbaro was never able to become a father; his nagging leg injuries made it dangerous for him to even attempt mounting a mare.

Has a horse survived a broken leg?
Breaks are most commonly heard of in racehorses, but any horse can break a bone in its leg. While euthanasia is often still the only option, advances in veterinary technologies and techniques mean some horses can be saved, and may even be able to return to their work in some capacity.
