Favorite Justify wins Kentucky Derby on wettest race day

Her $18 dollar wager secured her $1.2 million dollars.

Baffert guided his fifth Derby victor out of the barn and walked him in a tight circle for fans who eagerly snapped photos on their phones.

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

Pick 5 or Pick 6 winners can take home large jackpots considering how hard it is to select that many first-place finishers over a string of races.

"To bet that little amount of money and win $1.2 million is unheard of".

Justify was given a 103 Beyer Speed rating for his 2:04.20 final time over a mile and a quarter.

"It would take a horse like him to break that curse".

He continued, "He's got that "it" factor, he's just so above average with unbelievable talent and he's got the mind to go with it". At the three-eighths pole I thought, 'Man, he better be a really good horse.' We saw another gear that we hadn't seen yet. I don't know if he's so strong or Mike (age 52) is just too old to pull him up. We won the toughest and most important one. We are looking at our 2nd Triple Crown victor in 3 years, after going 37 years without one.

Trainer Todd Pletcher, whose four Derby horses included third-place Audible, gave no indication of Preakness plans. "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". Bravazo, sixth in the Derby, might be the top Derby foe to challenge Justify over the shorter distance in Baltimore.

"I didn't tell them I'd think about it", he said.
