People in racing with knowledge of the deal said it included a bonus of about $25 million were Justify to win the Triple Crown, which he then went on to do, and that it also allowed the multiple owners to retain some shares in the horse when he begins his career as a sire (a provision that also has benefited Zayat to the tune of millions of dollars).
1875 - The Kentucky Derby is established. He had already won the Champagne, the Flamingo, and the Wood Memorial at three different tracks. Justify won in 2:28.18, well off the record time of 2:24, run by Secretariat in 1973.
Justify will travel to Baffert's base in Southern California on Sunday to await his next move. "He's so gifted", said Justify's jockey Mike Smith, who looked to the sky to celebrate after his ride. "This horse overcame a lot".
But these are itches only racing fans feel obligated to scratch. In fact, the only reason Justify might keep racing is because stallion season in Kentucky doesn't start until next February. It is the second Triple Crown for trainer Bob Baffert (top right). "Now we can take a deep breath and just see how the horse is".
There is a reason the 1970s are longingly referred to as the Golden Age of Racing, and it's not because of Ruffian, Forego, and Ack Ack. The son of Scat Daddy joins Seattle Slew as one of only two colts as undefeated winners of the Triple Crown. Other trainers are saying Justify's stable mate, Restoring Hope, was used to hold off other horses in the race, and was never actually trying to win.
May 27, 1873 - The first Preakness Stakes is run. "I would have thought Baffert would have wanted Restoring Hope nowhere close to the pace".
Baffert denied using Restoring Hope to protect Justify. In the end, nothing Geroux did rose to the level of flagrantly unsafe riding, and stewards are notoriously shy about penalizing bad intentions.
"Standard procedure has the three stewards closely monitor the race as it is being run and to review the race on digital format in instances where the stewards themselves have concern or when an objection is leveled by jockeys or trainers competing in the event", a spokesman for the New York State Gaming Commission said in a statement released to The Post on Monday. Icebergs reveal more above the waterline.
