Derby victor Justify takes aim at Preakness crown next

'To bet that little amount of money and win $1.2 million is unheard of.

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. Justify's next step is in two weeks at the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

"There's no telling what this horse can do", Smith said.

Baffert equated Pharoah's performance at Churchill to Justify's winning run in the Santa Anita Derby - merely pretty good. He looks good, but I just have to observe him.

In fact, the woman's winnings almost matched the $1.24 million prize Justify won in the famed thoroughbred Run for the Roses.

"He is really talented and fast, and he has a mind to go with it - he was just loving (the conditions and the crowd)".

Justify, who improved to 4-0, became the first horse since Apollo 136 years ago to win the showdown for three-year-olds without running the year before.

"He's a superior horse", said Baffert, who captured his fifth Derby.

"You better get used to this", the five-time Derby victor said to his colt. He then had to take on a challenge by Bolt D'Oro. Good Magic chased in pursuit but never had a move to prevent him from becoming the sixth consecutive favourite to win the Derby. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him.

Starlight Racing, a small syndicate run by Jack Wolf and his wife, Laurie, usually invests in unproven yearlings, not 3-year-olds. We won the toughest and most important one. Heres to Justify, America will be watching and rooting for you. He finished second by 2 1/2 lengths, just nosing out the late-charging Audible (at 7-1) to earn his runner-up placing.
