  • Justify wins sloppy Kentucky Derby, Baffert takes 5th title

His four other Derby winners - Silver Charm, Real Quiet, War Emblem and American Pharoah - all won the 1 3/16-mile race.

Justify, who was bred by John D. Gunther of Vancouver and raised by Gunther's daughter in Louisville, Kentucky, won with a time of 2:04.20.

He thought Justify's win in the Santa Anita Derby was just so-so, unlike his win on Saturday.

As for Justify's challengers at Pimlico, don't expect to see too numerous 19 horses he bested at Churchill Downs on Saturday.

"Right now I'm thinking just keep him healthy", he said.

In 2017, a Kentucky Derby gambler collected $75,000 off a $1 bet. Good Magic was second while Audible was another head back in third.

The woman, who hails from Austin, Texas, correctly picked the favorite Justify to win the big race.

In a pick five, a person must choose the winning horses for five races in a row. Nevertheless, only four horses have won the Preakness having not run in the Kentucky Derby over the past 34 years.

Justify broke from the No. 7 post well, ran to the front with Promises Fulfilled and pulled away just as the horses passed the 3/4-mile marker in the 1-1/4 mile race.

"I don't know", said Brown, who won the Preakness past year with new-shooter Cloud Computing.

"He's up there with him", Baffert said. I keep using the term 'above average, ' because he has a mind to him as well.

Smith's silks were almost spotless after he kept 5-2 favorite Justify near the lead throughout the race.

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

Mendelssohn, the European-trained colt that was a 6-1 favorite, struggled and finished last in the 20-horse field. NBC's Derby coverage has earned a rating of at least 9.0 for 12 consecutive years.
