The Pressbox Interviews Justify Farrier Curtis Burns

The Pressbox interviews Justify farrier Curtis Burns. Burns, who has developed a metal alternative shoe for horses, worked his magic on Justify after the Kentucky Derby.

I’m very proud of him. He attended a very fast pace. We knew going in that Justify looked like a big monster and we didn’t want to be too far away. Jose (Ortiz) executed it perfect. I asked him to follow him even if the pace was a little quick to keep him in close range. We thought he was the horse to beat and it was true. Very proud of our horse. He held on for second there. We’re working our way toward that winner’s circle. It wasn’t to be this year. It was a tough field. But I’m real proud of this horse. He kept fighting all the way to the end and he showed that he’s a top-class horse.”
