"The horse is sound".

Justify was frisky and Baffert was seemingly having trouble controlling his horse.

Justify, the 5-2 favorite, became the first Derby victor in 136 years that did not race as a 2-year-old. Well, Justify did just that as he had almost a flawless break from the starting gate.

"That's when we knew how special he was", Baffert said. "I mean he's full of himself". He ate up last night and today he has been a handful. He's so handsome. He's got the body. "Usually they are a little bit exhausted".

Now, Baffert is in position to make another run at the Triple Crown.

There's a historical reason to back that theory. It started in 1997 with Silver Charm, followed by Real Quiet in 1998, War Emblem in 2002 and American Pharoah in 2015.

Justify is justifiably getting a lot of credit for his big win at the 144th Kentucky Derby this weekend.

In 2017, a Kentucky Derby gambler collected $75,000 off a $1 bet.

A day after Justify raced to a 2½-length victory in the slop as the 5-2 favorite, trainer Bob Baffert and his star horse drew a horde of visitors to his barn at Churchill Downs.

"Right now I'm thinking just keep him healthy", he said. It was just OK. "That was probably his best race".

The woman, whose identity has not yet been confirmed, played a pick five bet on the Kentucky Derby. When the horses came to him, he wanted to take off again. I keep using the term 'above average, ' because he has a mind to him as well. "It was just an awesome performance".

The Preakness field won't have the star power of the Kentucky Derby. Thus, he will set up a dramatic finish in the Belmont Stakes. Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet.

"I want him back in NY and that gives me time to decide what's next", trainer Chad 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". Lukas has won the Preakness six times. Bravazo, sixth in the Derby, might be the top Derby foe to challenge Justify over the shorter distance in Baltimore.

So whats next for the Kentucky Derby Winner?

Mike Smith earned his second Derby victory, becoming at 52 the second-oldest winning jockey. "To me it's not only the toughest one but the most important one. If he wins the Preakness then we'll see".
