Todd Pletcher, the trainer of Audible, usually sits out the Preakness if he does not have the victor of the Kentucky Derby, preparing to work his horses up to the Belmont Stakes in NY, the third jewel of the Triple Crown. "It took a great horse to do what he did today". I don't know if he's so strong or Mike (age 52) is just too old to pull him up.
Justify began racing in February and won his first race, at Santa Anita, by 9 1/2 lengths.
"I don't think Pharoah really ran his best race (in the Kentucky Derby)", Baffert said.

Justify, who was bred by John D. Gunther of Vancouver and raised by Gunther's daughter in Louisville, Kentucky, won with a time of 2:04.20. Baffert is four for four in winning the Preakness after winning the Derby. "I didn't say anything". A 50-cent trifecta bet on Justify, Good Magic and Audible to finish in that order brought back $70.70. Almost 3 inches fell on the crowd of 157,813 throughout the day.
Chad Brown, trainer of Good Magic, said he was proud of his horse but was unlikely to take another shot at Justify when the Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown, is held two weeks from now.
"Right now I'm thinking just keep him healthy", he said.
"He got beat up out of the gate and proceeded to check on the first turn, and was never in a good place", jockey Ryan Moore said.
