Justify won the Preakness Stakes on May 19, 2018 after winning the Kentucky Derby on May 5. Now the three-year-old will try and win the Belmont Stakes to become the 13th winner of horse racing's Triple Crown.
Kentucky Derby winner Justify is the 1-2 favorite in Saturday's Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course. Derby runner-up Good Magic, second choice at 3-1, appears to be the only horse in the field of eight capable of pulling the upset.
Justify emerged from the fog and sloshed his way to another impressive victory, holding off several hard-charging challengers to win the Preakness on Saturday and keep alive the chance for trainer Bob Baffert's second Triple Crown champion in four years.
Unbeaten Justify won the Kentucky Derby on a sloppy track at Churchill Downs. With rains having soaked Baltimore and with more wet weather on the way, will Justify be able to win again on a sloppy track in the Preakness?
