"Those horses were dominant in the Derby over the rest of the field, and the Preakness typically plays toward how the Derby plays". But as Justify came down the stretch on the muddy surface, he was able to just hold off Bravazo in the final lengths. Those will only continue assuming Justify is good to go for the Belmont in three weeks. It turned out well for the victor, American Pharoah, who went on to complete the Triple Crown in three weeks. "We'll see how he trains", Baffert said.

Tim Ritvo, the chief operating officer of the Stronach Group, said in a news conference Saturday afternoon at Pimlico Race Course before the 143rd Preakness that there are no plans on the table to invest more of the organization's funds into the 148-year-old facility.

"But right now I say why not?"

The Preakness triumph also gives Baffert 14 total victories in Triple Crown races, tying him with D. Wayne Lukas for most all time.

None of his closest male relatives wears one, though Charles has a thin gold band beside his signet ring on a pinkie finger. Harry said he had never heard of his future wife or watched her TV series, and she said she knew nothing of the prince.

According to OddsShark, Justify is the early favorite to win the Belmont at +125, while Audible is second in the odds at +400. "What he's done in that short 75 days to win the Kentucky Derby, to go, go, go, - and he ran with some good horses - he makes my job a lot easier". Jockey Mike Smith was anxious when he saw Good Magic over his shoulder and when Justify slipped early, and he was hoping there was enough left to get to the wire.

When the horses finally emerged into view, Justify had been through a full mile of a head-to-head duel with Good Magic, a battle that clearly exhausted both horses. "I'm so happy that we got it done", Baffert told broadcaster NBC. Consequently, it can never be run before 15 May or after 21 May. The last was American Pharoah in 2015. If the weather doesn't influence the race - Justify is the heavy favorite - it most certainly could have an impact on attendance after the event drew a record 140,327 in 2017.

"He got a little exhausted", Smith said. Baffert also remained undefeated with Derby winners in the Preakness following Silver Charm, Real Quiet, War Emblem and American Pharoah.

Justify, who was favored to win the race, and his jockey, Mike Smith, defeated seven other horses. "I would have liked to see a different scenario, maybe where we're just off the pace a little bit, we weren't getting pressed on the fence the whole way".
