Good Magic finished second, just ahead of Audible. "The horse is sound".

"That last 100 yards, I was just in awe of that performance", Baffert said.

According to ESPN, Justify had the surest odds of the winners chosen by the woman, who also picked Funny Duck at 40-1 odds in the 10th race of the day.

Skipping the Preakness after the Kentucky Derby is hardly rare, as trainers often are hesitant to send their horses out only two weeks after a major race or have plans to point them toward other races down the line. In an Instagram post, the Kentucky Derby writes, "The Apollo Curse is dead!" It started in 1997 with Silver Charm, followed by Real Quiet in 1998, War Emblem in 2002 and American Pharoah in 2015.

The 3-year-old colt arrived at Churchill Downs being compared by some to 2015 Triple Crown victor American Pharoah.

Justify began racing in February and won his first race, at Santa Anita, by 9 1/2 lengths.

"My job was just to get him out of there", he said. I keep using the term 'above average, ' because he has a mind to him as well. Thus, he will set up a dramatic finish in the Belmont Stakes.

"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said.

"You run a horse back in two weeks off an effort like this, even if he's not going to run for a while, it doesn't mean it's good for the horse long-term". Bravazo, sixth in the Derby, might be the top Derby foe to challenge Justify over the shorter distance in Baltimore.

Among the fresh horses under consideration are Tampa Bay Derby victor Quip and Federico Tesio victor Diamond King.

Baffert guided his fifth Derby victor out of the barn and walked him in a tight circle for fans who eagerly snapped photos on their phones. "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see".
