Favorite Justify wins Kentucky Derby on wettest race day

Terrence Howard

The three-year-old colt was the favourite heading into the race with odds of 2.9 to 1 to win.

"We won the toughest one, the Kentucky Derby", Baffert said.

He gunned Justify out of the No. 7 spot in the starting gate - something Baffert said had to happen - and the colt's early speed helped hook leader Promises Fulfilled from the start. Baffert has trained five Derby winners, one shy of the all-time record, and no Derby victor of his who has raced the Preakness has failed to win it. Good Magic was second while Audible was another head back in third.

Stormy Daniels calls for Pres. Trump's resignation in 'SNL' skit
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, responded by demanding Trump resign. "People don't go away for $130,000". Why can't he resolve things with Daniels, too, he asked. "I can just say it's rumor", Giuliani said.

Justify moved into the lead by the 1-mile pole and cruised from there, crossing the finish line in 2 minutes, 4.20 seconds. Baffert is four for four in winning the Preakness after winning the Derby. Derby runner-up Good Magic, last year's 2-year-old champion and Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor, appears unlikely to run in the Preakness. The same can be said for Bolt d'Oro and Mendelssohn, according to the Baltimore Sun's Childs Walker, who added that we'll next see fifth-place finisher My Boy Jack and seventh-place Hofburg at the Belmont Stakes in June.

"It would take a horse like him to break that curse". He has got that big, long stride and he's just so efficient. I keep using the term 'above average, ' because he has a mind to him as well.

"I want him back in NY and that gives me time to decide what's next", trainer Chad Brown said.

Blast kills 5 people in central Gaza Strip
The Israeli army fears a mass push of thousands of protesters to break through the Gaza border fence and cross into Israel. The protests are due to continue until mid-May, when the U.S. plans to move its embassy.

Now, Baffert is in position to make another run at the Triple Crown. "We saw something really great".

"I really thought I was going to get there", Good Magic's jockey, Jose Ortiz, said. Lukas has won the Preakness six times.
