Justify Wows in Historic Kentucky Derby Feat
In only his fourth race Justify becomes the first horse since 1882 to win the Kentucky Derby without having raced as a two-year-old. The son of Scat Daddy remains undefeated as the Triple Crown series begins with one of its most promising contenders. Trainer Bob Baffert wins his fifth Kentucky Derby, and jockey Mike Smith wins his second.
The margin of victory was 2 ½ lengths to Good Magic who narrowly held on to second in a photo-finish with a thrilling challenge from Audible.
