Nearly 3 inches of rain made for sloppy conditions at the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby. Promises Fulfilled went to the lead, but Justify never let him get away. In fact, two of her picks were indeed very long shots: Funny Duck won by a nose in his race despite 39-1 odds; and Yoshida won his race despite 9-1 odds.
Another record was broken on Saturday, since the National Weather Service stated that it was that the wettest Derby at any time.
Brooks and Dunn were together again as they took in the race, Thompson Square made their first Derby appearance, Jake Owen brought along his girlfriend, Terri Clark shined in a mint green blazer and more. "I'll give you 250-1.' He says, 'Come on, Johnny.' I said, 'I'll give you 300-1.' Now he's sitting 300-1 on Justify at a big number".
Justify, the 5-2 favorite, became the first Derby victor in 136 years that did not race as a 2-year-old. Chad Brown, the trainer of Good Magic, said after the race that he would not take his horse to the Preakness.
It remains uncertain which horses will line up to try to keep him from that second jewel. He even went so far as to indicate that Justify ran a better Derby than American Pharoah. "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see". In an Instagram post, the Kentucky Derby writes, "The Apollo Curse is dead!"
