Baltimore, Maryland (WAVE) – Is the hype Justified?
Kentucky Derby winner Justify takes his shot at the second jewel of the Triple Crown at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday.
The Bob Baffert trainee jogged on the muddy, wet Pimlico track on Thursday and Friday morning.
I bet against Justify in the Derby. I thought he would chase Promises Fulfilled and get caught up in a speed duel, only to fall back to second under the wire. My pick was third place finisher Audible. I was half right, only Justify ran along with the fast early fractions and then still had plenty when they turned for home. The mud here should make that trip possible again, and I won't be fooled again.
