The woman is taking home around the same amount as Justify's team, who won $1.4 million, according to the Associated Press.

Smith, Justify was able to prove oddsmakers right with the victory. Justify's win was the safest, with a track record of 3-1.

As if there were any sort of doubt, trainer Bob Baffert confirmed Sunday morning that Kentucky Derby champion Justify would continue his quest for the Triple Crown at the Preakness Stakes on May 19.

"There's no telling what this horse can do", Smith said.

"I was just in awe of the performance", Baffert said. When I got him out of the stall he was pulling me around. He owned a stake in Justify, the victor of the 144th running of the race, and third-place finisher Audible through a Kentucky racing syndicate called Starlight, the American Lawyer reported. I keep using the term 'above average, ' because he has a mind to him as well.

The three-year-old colt was the favourite heading into the race with odds of 2.9 to 1 to win. Good Magic chased in pursuit but never had a move to prevent him from becoming the sixth consecutive favourite to win the Derby.

Even the Austin Statesman documented on Sunday that the girl, that was not identified but modeled to get a film, will soon be carrying dwelling about an identical amount because the owners of their race's victor. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him. "If I like the way he comes out of that, then we'll take a shot at the Belmont".

"I didn't tell them I'd think about it", he said.

Good Magic, who ran a good but futile second, is on the fence for the Preakness. But Baffert suggested Justify is one race ahead of Pharoah on the maturation cycle despite the fact he began his racing career so much later. Heres to Justify, America will be watching and rooting for you.
