In the backstretch, Smith let him relax a bit, but once he asked for Justify's best around the far turn, the horse responded like a freight train.
Racing for owners Kenny Trout of WinStar Farm, Ah Khing Ten of the China Horse Club, Jack Wolf and others' Starlight Racing and Sol Kumin's Head of the Plains Partners - Justify kept his ideal racing record intact at 4 for 4. "He's got unbelievable talent and then he's got a mind to go with it". There's no story, he said, just a good name for a good horse.
Jockey Mike Smith earned his second Derby victory, becoming at 52 the second-oldest winning jockey.
Justify could be going up against some fresh legs during the Preakness, so the feat won't be easy just two weeks after an arduous race in the rain and mud at the famed Churchill Downs. Starlight owned Justify with three other racing companies, report the New York Times and the Lexington Herald-Leader. Audible and Good Magic, who both raced in Louisville and finished in the money, are at 5-1 and 6-1 odds, respectively. "It took a great horse to do what he did today".
They teamed to win Justify's second race on March 11 in the mud, foretelling his ability to handle what he would face at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May. The third race of the treble is June 9 at the Belmont Stakes in NY.
Despite the soggy conditions, the total attendance of 157,813 for the 14-race card marked the eighth-largest crowd in the race's history.
"Justify looked like a big monster", said Chad Brown, who trains Good Magic.
