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. 

I think we’re all pleased.  Naturally, winning would have been the only thing that would have been better, but he ran well and he galloped out well.  He took a lot of dirt and was very professional.  He was much more seasoned today and did everything right.  He was the perfect gentleman and just much better behaved today. We’ve got to think about (the Kentucky Derby) he ran well enough and galloped out good enough that we’ve got to take everything into consideration but we’re not going to rule anything out at this point.”

Bill Mott, Trainer of Hofburg, who ran 2nd in Florida Derby
