Approaching the half-mile pole, Smith pulled the trigger and sent Justify to the front with last year's champion 2-year-old Good Magic taking up the chase.

The sound of at least 30 cameras buzzing and clicking broke the silence of the backstretch as Baffert tried to steady his horse.

"Right now I'm thinking just keep him healthy", he said.

Wise ties for 2nd at Wells Fargo Championship
Ohtani wound up giving up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six before 40,142 at Safeco Field. PGA Tour rookie Aaron Wise almost had a collapse late until he salvaged a most unlikely bogey.

Justify was the first colt who didn't race as a 2-year-old to win the Derby since 1882, in what was known as the "Curse of Apollo".

A Texas woman won $1.2 million on an $18 "Pick 5" bet that included Kentucky Derby victor Justify. "That's the best Kentucky Derby-winning performance that I brought up here". Baffert is four for four in winning the Preakness after winning the Derby. Baffert's other victories came with Silver Charm (1997), Real Quiet (1998), War Emblem (2002) and Triple Crown victor American Pharoah (2015). It started in 1997 with Silver Charm, followed by Real Quiet in 1998, War Emblem in 2002 and American Pharoah in 2015.

"(Jockey) Mike (Smith) was telling me he had trouble pulling him up", Baffert said. "I just basically stayed out the way". Thus, he will set up a dramatic finish in the Belmont Stakes.

What is the Iran deal? Defence Secretary James Mattis is just about the only voice of sanity in the Trump administration. In his destructive drive, Trump cares nothing for the interests of the global community or of the "American people".

Baffert said the three-year-old colt had abundant energy the morning after defeating Good Magic by 2 1/2 lengths to conquer a 20-horse field over 1 1/4 miles on a muddy Churchill Downs track.

"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said. "We saw something really great".

"You run a horse back in two weeks off an effort like this, even if he's not going to run for a while, it doesn't mean it's good for the horse long-term". He then had to take on a challenge by Bolt D'Oro.
