The bet paid off huge, netting the gambler $150,000 with the win thanks to the help of an insider tip. A lot of people including myself were very wary of him because he had only raced 3 times and never as a 2-year-old.

Smith and Justify head to the second leg of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes, on May 19 in Baltimore.

"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said.

"He looks phenomenal", Baffert said. When I got him out of the stall he was pulling me around. Nevertheless, only four horses have won the Preakness having not run in the Kentucky Derby over the past 34 years. "He has got the mind for it".

We asked if we could start putting Justify in the same conversation as American Pharoah - who won the Triple Crown - and Baffert told us it's not a insane comparison.

Another record was broken on Saturday, since the National Weather Service stated that it was that the wettest Derby at any time.

Justify ran the third-fastest first half-mile in Kentucky Derby history and still had enough to finish strongly, aspects that have racing insiders claiming that his best races are yet to come.

"You better get used to this", the five-time Derby victor said to his colt. Audible and Good Magic, who both raced in Louisville and finished in the money, are at 5-1 and 6-1 odds, respectively. "I'm not thinking about that at all, not yet", he said. But Baffert suggested Justify is one race ahead of Pharoah on the maturation cycle despite the fact he began his racing career so much later.

It remains uncertain which horses will line up to try to keep him from that second jewel. Why settle for one Triple Crown when perhaps Justify can bring you another?
