Maraud won the American Turf Stakes in the ninth race, and Funny Duck took the Pat Day Mile race after facing 39-1 odds. "He has that presence about him".

"For a horse to do what he has done he has to be really great", Baffert said. American Pharaoh, also trained by Baffert, accomplished the feat, ending a 37-year drought.

If you're only a casual horse racing fan, you may only be familiar with the so-called "classic" bets on horse racing; that is, Win, Place, and Show.

"I want him back in NY and that gives me time to decide what's next", trainer Chad Brown said. A 50-cent trifecta bet on Justify, Good Magic and Audible to finish in that order brought back $70.70. His winning time was a pedestrian 2:04.2, which was most likely a product of the conditions rather than Justify's overall talent.

However, the big money in horse racing is in the so-called "exotic" bets. "I saw the splits and how fast they were, but he was doing it easy". I don't know if he's so strong or Mike (age 52) is just too old to pull him up. But the trend to team up, Wolf said, is here to stay.

The Sport of Kings knighted a new millionaire. It won the Oaks previous year with Abel Tasman and then one-upped itself with Justify. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him. "In fact, it's the first time it's happened at Retama". "This feels about as good as it gets", he insisted.

When asked about the race right after his big win, the first thing Smith does is thank Jesus, telling reporters, "I just want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing us on this afternoon, and blessing us with this unbelievable horse". Heres to Justify, America will be watching and rooting for you.
