The Apollo Curse Is Washed Away As Justify Wins Wet Kentucky Derby

Racing for owners Kenny Trout of WinStar Farm, Ah Khing Ten of the China Horse Club, Jack Wolf and others' Starlight Racing and Sol Kumin's Head of the Plains Partners - Justify kept his ideal racing record intact at 4 for 4. Todd Pletcher, the trainer of Audible, usually sits out the Preakness if he does not have the victor of the Kentucky Derby, preparing to work his horses up to the Belmont Stakes in NY, the third jewel of the Triple Crown.

"That's when we knew how special he was", Baffert said.

Trailing Promises Fulfilled by a length after the first quarter miles, the two horses held that position for the next two quarter miles, but Justify made his move in the final turn. "If I like the way he comes out of that, then we'll take a shot at the Belmont".

Kentucky Derby is a win for Frost Brown Todd... Last year's victor, Cloud Computing, won with a time of 1:55.98.

Good Magic finished second, just ahead of Audible. "We've just got to go from there". "I'm not thinking about that at all, not yet", he said.

It's called the most exciting two minutes in sports, and the Kentucky Derby didn't disappoint on Saturday (May 5) with Justify taking the crown. Maybe they just wanted to have a good time.

Baffert's phone rang Sunday with an official invitation to bring Justify to run in the Preakness on May 19 in Baltimore.

Despite the soggy conditions, the total attendance of 157,813 for the 14-race card marked the eighth-largest crowd in the race's history. Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet.

"I really thought I was going to get there", Good Magic's jockey, Jose Ortiz, said.
