He won the first jewel of the Triple Crown under a historic deluge that dumped a record-setting 3.15 inches of rain on Churchill Downs on Derby day.

Trainer Bob Baffert said he's wanted to let Justify develop at his own pace. Plus, he also won at Santa Anita Park in the wet in March. The Scat Daddy colt, who arrived at Pimlico this afternoon, will break from post number seven with Hall of Famer Mike Smith once again in the irons.

Prior to the Derby however, Baffert mused that the thoroughbred landscape has changed and that a three-year-old that comes into the race without any experience the year prior will win a Derby sooner rather than later.

"Maybe just emotionally [I] really like the horse because of [the Curlin] connection and his personality, but I think he has a ton of talent", he said.

After Justify and Good Magic, No. 1 Quip is third at 12-1. Jerry Izenberg of NJ.com wonders if the horse and trainer Chad Brown have a shot to spring the upset at the Preakness. Baffert said the foot was reshod with a full shoe after Justify trained with a "three-quarter" shoe to alleviate pressure on the bruised area.

James Scully from Brisnet has a look at why Preakness history favors horses who run in the Kentucky Derby. "What he's done in such a short time - this will be his fifth race in 13 weeks - it's incredible how tough he is". "I don't want to be 50-1, I like knowing that I have a chance to win". He earned his first win at the 2017 Breeders' Cup Juvenile and was the victor of this year's Bluegrass Stakes.

In his four career races, Justify has looked every bit as dominant as American Pharoah, and with a win on Saturday, could go on to match his success.

Unbeaten colt broke the "Curse of Apollo" in the Kentucky Derby, in rainstorm and on a sloppy track. He seems the lone alternative to the two favorites but he would need to run many lengths faster than his career best to win the Preakness. "Ideally we want a lovely day so everyone can enjoy what a great spectacle the Preakness is".

After winning the Kentucky Derby rather handily from the No. 7 post, Justify will stay in that spot for the Preakness, and he's a big favorite with 1-2 morning-line odds.

Bravazo finished sixth in the Kentucky Derby. Justify, the Kentucky Derby victor, is expected to be the heavy favorite. "We'll see how it all works out". The first leg - the Kentucky Derby - was held on May 5 and the third leg - the Belmont Stakes - will be held on Saturday, June 9.

"I won't answer that question now", Walden said before chuckling over the situation. "I've surprised them here before".
