Favorite Justify wins Kentucky Derby on wettest race day

Lucarelli basks in Derby dream with Justify

The Race for the Roses is scheduled to begin at 6:46 p.m. ET. That fifth race happened to be the Kentucky Derby. His other Derby triumph came in 2005 when he scored with the 50-1 shot Giacomo, and this time the challenge was to guide his supremely talented, but woefully inexperienced, mount to victory in a jammed 20-horse field.

Only 12 horses in history have swept the treble, Baffert-trained American Pharoah being the most recent in 2015. Audible, who was foaled in Pine Plains, finished third.

"Oh, he looks like LeBron", Baffert says. "I understand the program and I can break down the races".

"This track had me anxious but when he got away I knew we had a chance". "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see".

"He's got that "it" factor", Smith said. "He has got the mind for it". Quip, who qualified for the Kentucky Derby but whose trainer believed he needed more time, was also scheduled to run in two weeks. The favorite won for the sixth year in a row, the longest such run since the 1970s.

Fritsch said the cuts, along with demand growth, were more than offsetting the increase in USA oil . Prices added as much as 0.3 percent to $69.91 a barrel after a 1.9 percent gain on Friday.

Justify scored his location in the gate with his three-length success over Bolt d'Oro at the $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 7. 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.

Justify ran 1ΒΌ miles in 2:04.20.

Reid won a "pick five", in which you have to pick the victor of five races in a row. But he said: "I've never been on a 3-year-old like this".

Justify will move on to try to capture the second leg of the Triple Crown in the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore on May 19.
