Of his 19 rivals in the Derby, it appears most will skip the second leg of the Triple Crown in favor of resting and being pointed toward other races.
Many of these horses will not be chasing Justify around the track at Pimlico. Only 12 horses have won all three races in the same year, the most recent being Baffert-trained American Pharoah in 2015.
Mike Smith earned his second Derby victory, becoming at 52 the second-oldest winning jockey. The chestnut colt's coat shone in the morning sunlight and he nibbled on a couple of baby carrots Baffert plucked from his vest pocket.
"He came out of it really well", Baffert said of the Derby.
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. With Justify playfully tossing his head, Baffert knew it was best to get the champ back in his stall where he couldn't inadvertently kick anyone. It was a sigh of relief when I got him out of the gate and I just stayed out of his way. "Usually they're a little bit exhausted, but he was good". The Preakness, as always, will be run on the third Saturday of May.
After Justify took home the 2018 Kentucky Derby title and his owner's received $1.24 million for their $500,000 investment, a Texas woman made that payout seem insignificant. But Baffert isn't going there yet.
"Oh, he looks like LeBron", Baffert says. However, New York-based trainer Chad Brown said he would weigh his options before making a final decision.
"I want him back in NY and that gives me time to decide what's next", Brown said. "Wow, he's just somethin' else", Smith said. "That said, his sire came back in two weeks and won the Preakness". Other possibilities are Quip, the Arkansas Derby runner-up, and Diamond King, who would be a local favorite as the victor of the Federico Tesio Stakes at Laurel Park.
Still in the early stages of his return from debilitating back trouble, Woods said the more he plays, the better he feels. Luke List ($7,400): He has been on of the best players on Tour this season, now ranking 11th in FedEx cup points.
Post positions may not matter for the long haul, but they can make all the difference in the scrum at the beginning of the race. Justify and Magnum Moon are the only two in this field that could end the 135-year-old curse.
