Putting down $18, the woman won $1.2 million.

Smith, who won the Derby on Giacomo in 2005, said the victory was due to the horse.

"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. Baffert has trained five Derby winners, one shy of the all-time record, and no Derby victor of his who has raced the Preakness has failed to win it.

Todd Pletcher, who dislikes running his horses again in two weeks, said Audible (third in the Derby), Magnum Moon, Vino Rosso and Noble Indy would return to his NY base.

Justify's owners won 1.24 million.

The competition isn't exactly lining up to take on Kentucky Derby victor Justify in the Preakness.

"It would take a horse like him to break that curse". "That's the best Kentucky Derby-winning performance that I brought up here".

He continued, "He's got that "it" factor, he's just so above average with unbelievable talent and he's got the mind to go with it". I don't know if he's so strong or Mike (age 52) is just too old to pull him up. "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see". Of his 19 rivals in the Derby, it appears most will skip the second leg of the Triple Crown in favor of resting and being pointed toward other races.

"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said. Three years ago, he trained American Pharoah to the sport's first sweep of the Derby, Preakness and Belmont in 37 years and just the 12th ever.

"You run a horse back in two weeks off an effort like this, even if he's not going to run for a while, it doesn't mean it's good for the horse long-term".
