Unfortunately, I’ve been guilty to some degree of committing the same offense that so irritates me.
“I’ve got it down to what I think is a science with my fitness level, so if I hadn’t ridden in four, five days I could jump on one and it doesn’t take nothing out”, he said.
In the 2010 Kentucky Derby, Baffert had the favorite with Lookin At Lucky, who broke from the No. 1 hole.

The 150th running of the Belmont Stakes will have history on the line as Justify attempts to become just the 13th horse in history to win the Triple Crown. So everybody gets to see the Derby victor and you get to see him up close and the other guys are trying to beat you.
The No. 1 hole could hurt Justify, meaning he’ll be forced to use some early speed to keep from being pinned on the rail. As Romans pointed out, Baffert could have run him. This week, though, it just doesn’t seem right. Chris Mara is a member of the Starlight Racing group, which owns a stake in Justify.

Gronkowski is a mystery.
Justify is the 4-5 favorite but could be pushed by Mott’s entry Hofburg (9-2), Vino Rosso and Lukas pupil Bravazo (both 8-1). Regularly ranked among the top 10 North American breeders, WinStar has been in the top five every year since 2012 and won an Eclipse Award in 2016 as North America’s most outstanding breeder. The distances for the Preakness and Belmont were different from today’s. He’s never run in a graded stakes, though, and has only won $135K in his life. “I miss him a lot”. It was his first win over a dirt surface in a ten race career run primarily over turf. “Just being there and a racing fan, I was glad to be a participant and feel the electricity and energy from all the people and the fans that day”.
The jockey knows the vast track with its sweeping turns like the back of his hand. Justify powered through 1¼ miles of rainy muck at the Kentucky Derby and charged in the fog to claim the 1 3/16-mile Preakness, winning the slowest race of his life by half a length.
On Tuesday, post positions were drawn, with Justify racing out of the first gate. Justify looks to become the 13th Triple Crown victor – ever! – so find out how to watch, the odds and more vital info!
