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

She picked Limousine Liberal (4-1 odds) to win the eighth race of the day at Churchill Downs in Kentucky, Maraud (8-1) to win the ninth, Funny Duck (40-1) to win the 10th, Yoshida (10-1) to win the 11th and Kentucky Derby favorite Justify (3-1) to win the main event.

Justify is just as impressive. Three years ago, he trained American Pharoah to the sport's first sweep of the Derby, Preakness and Belmont in 37 years and just the 12th ever.


In 2017, a Kentucky Derby gambler collected $75,000 off a $1 bet. Heres to Justify, America will be watching and rooting for you.

He gunned Justify out of the No. 7 spot in the starting gate - something Baffert said had to happen - and the colt's early speed helped hook leader Promises Fulfilled from the start. When the horses came to him, he wanted to take off again. "It was a pretty awesome performance". I don't know if he's so strong or Mike (age 52) is just too old to pull him up.

The Preakness field won't have the star power of the Kentucky Derby. Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet.


"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said. "That said, his sire (Curlin) came back in two weeks and won the Preakness". Quip, who qualified for the Kentucky Derby but whose trainer believed he needed more time, was also scheduled to run in two weeks.

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

"I don't know", said Brown, who won the Preakness previous year with new-shooter Cloud Computing. "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see".
