Brooks & Dunn, Jake Owen and More Shine at Kentucky Derby

Brooks & Dunn, Jake Owen and More Shine at Kentucky Derby

Jockey Mike Smith, 52, is also being praised for the successful Derby run, but Smith is directing those praises upward. Smith previously won aboard Giacomo in 2005. She picked the winners of 5 races and got them right.

This year, Justify was the pari-mutuel favorite who returned $7.60 to win for every $2 wagered. Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet.

"He's up there with him", Baffert said.

"This track had me anxious but when he got away I knew we had a chance". "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see". Referring to the rain and the huge field of 20 starters, Smith said, "He was lovin' this stuff".

Melania Trump announces 'Be Best' campaign for child well-being

"He is really talented and fast, and he has a mind to go with it - he was just loving (the conditions and the crowd). He was loving this stuff".

Justify has only run four races, so it can safely be assumed that the Kentucky Derby was his best one. Despite the unpredictable conditions, history predicted the result - it was the sixth consecutive Derby that a favorite has won.

Baffert said he knew he had a "really, really special horse" after Justify won a maiden race California's Santa Anita Park in February. But he actually had to fight hard to win the 2015 Derby, and that performance left many handicappers wondering if he was even the clear star of his crop. 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 final horse was an easy pick: she chose Justify to win the Kentucky Derby, as did apparently everyone else at Churchill Downs that day. "I'll give you 250-1.' He says, 'Come on, Johnny.' I said, 'I'll give you 300-1.' Now he's sitting 300-1 on Justify at a big number".
