From his February 18 maiden win at Santa Anita Park to his 2 1/2-length victory over juvenile male champion Good Magic on the first Saturday in May, Justify hasn't shown any dents in the form that allowed him to become the first horse since 1882 to win the Kentucky Derby after not starting as a 2-year-old.
There were a few concerns when Jusify's flight to Baltimore was delayed on Wednesday but Baffert said all was OK.
"It's always great to have tactical speed and a position where the jockey can look over and watch the race unfold and decide how he wants to ride".

Justify, who had won his only previous race on a wet track, turned in a dominant 2 ½-length win on a sloppy track in the 2018 Kentucky Derby. "Coming in here I feel the same as I did when I won it with the other ones".
Two other Derby horses will try to turn the tables on Justify - sixth-place finisher Bravazo and eighth-place finisher Lone Sailor. Good Magic, which finished second in Kentucky, has the next-best odds of winning.
Lone Sailor is 15-to-1 out of the No. 2 post, while Tenfold (No. 6) and Bravazo (No. 8) are 20-to-1. The Derby pull-away was expected and Justify should easily win in the shorter distance.
