She also correctly picked a 40-1 underdog (Funny Duck) in a different race.

Baffert guided his fifth Derby victor out of the barn and walked him in a tight circle for fans who eagerly snapped photos on their phones.

He gunned Justify out of the No. 7 spot in the starting gate - something Baffert said had to happen - and the colt's early speed helped hook leader Promises Fulfilled from the start. To win, she had to select the winners of five consecutive races. Good Magic was second, while Audible finished third.

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.

The competition isn't exactly lining up to take on Kentucky Derby victor Justify in the Preakness. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him.

The Derby record for most wins by a trainer is within Baffert's grasp, too. "We've just got to go from there". "I just basically stayed out the way".

"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said. "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". 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. "That said, his sire (Curlin) came back in two weeks and won the Preakness". "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see". Bravazo, sixth in the Derby, might be the top Derby foe to challenge Justify over the shorter distance in Baltimore.
