"The horse is sound".

"I didn't tell them I'd think about it", Baffert said of the telephone invitation he received from Preakness officials, via the Associated Press.

"To bet that little amount of money and win $1.2 million is unheard of".

An Austin woman turned $18 into $1.2 million by betting on the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, according to ABC News. Derby runner-up Good Magic, last year's 2-year-old champion and Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor, appears unlikely to run in the Preakness.

Trainer Todd Pletcher, whose four Derby horses included third-place Audible, gave no indication of Preakness plans.

The first leg of the horse racing's triple crown was run over the weekend, and it was a Vancouver-bred horse that came out victorious. It started in 1997 with Silver Charm, followed by Real Quiet in 1998, War Emblem in 2002 and American Pharoah in 2015.




Justify began racing in February and won his first race, at Santa Anita, by 9 1/2 lengths. "Right now I'm just thinking about keeping him healthy".

"He's up there with him", Baffert said. Thus, he will set up a dramatic finish in the Belmont Stakes.

Mike Smith earned his second Derby victory, becoming at 52 the second-oldest winning jockey.

"I want him back in NY and that gives me time to decide what's next", Brown said.

We'll find out in less than two weeks when the starting gates open at The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans at Pimlico. Lukas has won the Preakness six times. Diamond King, who won the Federico Tesio Stakes at Laurel, is also possible for the race. "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see".
