Justify wins Kentucky Derby on sloppy track

Justify won the 144th Kentucky Derby Saturday. Justify with jockey Mike Smith went off as the 5-to-2 favorite and was first to the finish line on a muddy track at Churchill Downs. Good Magic finished second, followed by Audible. It was another win for legendary trainer Bob Baffert and officially the wettest “Run for the Roses” ever. The Derby is the first leg of horse racing’s Triple Crown. The Preakness Stakes will take place Saturday, May 19th, followed by the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 9th.
