Two weeks ago, Justify took the victory at the Kentucky Derby, and this past weekend Justify won the Preakness by half a length in 1:55.93. He now heads to the Belmont Stakes on June 9 with a chance to win the Triple Crown. Bravazo finished second; Tenfold took third. “It was a hard race today on him, probably the hardest race he’s had, but he’s getting fit,” trainer Bob Baffer said after. Justify ran the race at 2-5 odds, with only Good Magic coming anywhere close at 7-2. No other horse was under double-digit odds; Bravazo went off at 15-1, and Tenfold was 25-1. Only four horses from the Kentucky Derby field were in the mix at Pimlico.
