Tuesday, 08 May, 2018

Eighty-five-to-one longshot Instilled Regard was fourth, putting a charge into the superfecta payout of $19,618.20.

Good Magic - last year's 2-year-old champion and Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor - was the only horse to have a serious shot at Justify turning for home.

She picked Maraud to win the American Turf Stakes in the ninth race, and Funny Duck to take the Pat Day Mile race despite 39-1 odds.

If all the office "pick-a-number" pools could be added in, the Kentucky Derby would be one of the largest per capita betting operations in the world.

"(Jockey) Mike (Smith) was telling me he had trouble pulling him up", Baffert said. "I saw the splits and how fast they were, but he was doing it easy". There's no story, he said, just a good name for a good horse. "It took a great horse to do what he did today". "I just basically stayed out the way". "This track really had me anxious".

"Amazing horse", Smith said.

"I think this horse is as special as American Pharoah to win a race like this, especially the way he did it", Baffert said. My horse tried so hard and I can't wait for his future. "We've just got to go from there".

Justify is co-owned by WinStar Farm, Head of Plains Partners, Starlight Racing and the China Horse Club. Good Magic chased in pursuit but never had a move to prevent him from becoming the sixth consecutive favourite to win the Derby. His winning time was a pedestrian 2:04.2, which was most likely a product of the conditions rather than Justify's overall talent.

Justify captured the opening leg of USA flat racing's Triple Crown, which continues in two weeks at the Preakness in Baltimore, Maryland, and concludes with June's Belmont Stakes in NY.

"Justify looked like a big monster", said Chad Brown, who trains Good Magic. 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. Prior to the race, that the bureau tweeted that rain levels in Louisville stood in 2.83 inches.
