Kentucky Derby Results

Justify broke a 136-year-old curse, by catching up to and then overpassing a handful of leaders down the stretch to win the 144th Kentucky Derby. The horse became the first since Apollo in 1882 to win as a three-year-old without racing as a two-year-old “When he got away clean, I thought we had a chance,” legendary trainer Bob Baffert said after the race. “He was doing it easy. Him, American Pharoah, these are great horses and it took a great horse to win today. I rank him Justify up there with my top ones. This track had me worried, but wow, he just had a run.” Good Magic finished second and Audible finished third, both 2½ lengths behind.

Preakness Results

Justify won the 143rd running of the Preakness Stakes on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Md. Justify entered the race as a 1-5 favorite. He was followed by Good Magic (5-1), Quip (11-1) and Lone Sailor (12-1). Justify is the 2018 Belmont Stakes Betting favorite.
