Preakness 2018: Bob Baffert discusses Justify on May 15

Trainer Bob Baffert spoke with the media after Kentucky Derby winner Justify trained Tuesday at Churchill Downs (separate video) in preparation for the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico. 

“She (Uni) has done well and thankfully we’ve been able to get her home after her illness [shipping fever] and were able to get her back feeling right again and training well,” Brown said. “We picked this race out about three weeks ago and we said, she is doing well, so let’s get her back started. And, man, she ran great today.”

“Both horses ran great. No surprises,” said Brown. “They both were training super, and I was confident that they would handle the soft ground, and Uni handled it a little bit better today. They both were training very similar.

“[Precieuse] is off a long layoff and she had a right to get a little tired at the end, and I think she ran great and I think she has a great future in front of her too.
