The heavy 2-5 favorite jumped out to the lead, surrendered it briefly to Good Magic and roared back, holding off several hard-charging challengers to win the Preakness through a cloud of fog on a sloppy, slippery track Saturday.

Justify, whose five races have come in 91 days, showed no ill effects from a bruise to the colt's left hind heel, likely incurred while racing on the wet surface at the Derby.

Now he will go into Belmont Park as America's next great equine sensation as he looks to enter a storied roll of thoroughbreds to sweep America's three most celebrated races, joining Sir Barton (1919), Gallant Fox (1930), Omaha (1935), War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941), Count Fleet (1943), Assault (1946), Citation (1948), Secretariat (1973), Seattle Slew (1977), Affirmed (1978) and American Pharoah (2015).

"We've made it pretty clear that we're not going to put any funds into it", Ritvo said.

This year, Baffert has his eye on his second Triple Crown, having won it in 2015 with American Pharoah. I'm just so blessed to be riding for these people right now.

Bravazo finished second while Tenfold got third.

The Kentucky Derby hero will line up against seven rivals for the Preakness Stakes, the second leg on the US Triple Crown trail.

Prediction: Good Magic. Overlooked because of Justify's impressive run at the Derby, don't be surprised if Good Magic spoils the Triple Crown talk by coming out of the gate strong and pulling off an upset.

"Oh man, it was a nail-biter", said Baffert, whose seventh Preakness victory saw him tie 19th-century trainer Robert Wyndham Walden for the all-time record.

Justify, the chestnut son of Scat Daddy out of the Ghostzapper mare Stage Magic, became the first horse to win the Derby without being raced as a 2-year-old since Apollo in 1882. "I would have liked to see a different scenario, maybe where we're just off the pace a little bit, we weren't getting pressed on the fence the whole way". "I did the same thing with American Pharoah, all my horses that ran the Triple Crown, they have to be 100 percent". He has won the Preakness six times - including with all four of his previous Derby winners.

"He got a little exhausted". Justify never had to work this hard to win a race, winning his first four starts by a combined 21 1/2 lengths.
